A WHITE KITE FOUND ON THE LAKE 10-15

I just got a phone call from Ben, Coast Guard is looking for a kiter after a kite was found today around Miller Beach.
If you had to ditch a kite in emergency yesterday or today, post something here, and also call Coast Guard #

This is a false alarm. My friends just called and asked me to post, they think this about one of them. More coming later, i don't know much. Hopefully not 2 situations.

Well call the Coast Guard if you can so they call off the search

Kite was found in Burn harbor marina late on Saturday afternoon. Police came to ask around but most kiter were gone, just West and John got back from downwinder and they did not know if someone let the kite go or is there a body somewhere in Lake Michigan.

So next time PLEASE let others know, specially Coast Guard if you need to abandon your kite.

Here is the useful link about situations like this.

It would be nice if the owner of the white kite could explain what happened themself, instead of leaving everyone guessing and speculating.
