    HONOLULU — The Coast Guard is seeking the public’s help identifying the owner of an adrift white windsurfing board found a half mile off Port Allen, Wednesday.

    A Station Kauai 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew is en-route to conduct a search of the area. Anyone with information helping to identify the owner of the kayak is requested to contact Sector Honolulu at 808-842-2600.

    There are no reports of missing persons at this time.

    At 8:50 a.m., Sector Honolulu watchstanders received a report from the master of the commercial diving vessel Explorer 10 stating they found the windsurfing board adrift with no sign of the owner. Sector Honolulu watchstanders issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast notice to mariners and launched the RB-M crew.

    The Coast Guard offers free “If Found” decals to mark gear or you write directly on it. The information on the sticker can allow responders to determine if someone is in distress more quickly and help get your equipment back to you. The labels can be obtained for free at local harbormasters, through the Coast Guard Auxiliary, from Honolulu Sail and Power Squadron offices and at select marine retail and supply stores.

    Similarly, if you lose kayaks, surfboard or safety equipment such as lifejackets, please report it to the Coast Guard to help our search and rescue specialists deconflict possible distress reports.
