New York State Police Ask for Surveillance Photos in Search for Missing Kayaker
New York State Police say they are still looking for a Massachusetts man who went missing while kayaking on Canadarago Lake in Otsego County on October 22.
Troopers now have released a photo of 47-year-old Frederick Mayock’s boat that was found at the lake.
Investigators are asking anyone who lives or has businesses near the boat launch and the lake to look for footage of the Springfield, Massachusetts man or the collapsible kayak from Saturday, October 22 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.
According to accounts out of his hometown, Mayock’s black Volkswagen Jetta has also been recovered along with other personal items that the New York State Police say they found at the lake.
Mayock was last seen assembling the white kayak at around 12:30 p.m. Saturday, October 22.
There is still no information concerning whether the missing man may have contacts in the area or if he was with a group of people when he went missing either from the New York State Police or law enforcement official in Springfield.
The boat launch where Mayock was last seen is on State Highway 28.
After his disappearance, residents living along the lake noticed the New York State Police helicopter and numerous troopers, drones and the New York State Police Underwater Recovery dive team in the area.
While there has been no detailed description of the man provided, a photo shows a white male, apparently of medium build with short-cut strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes.
