ROCKAWAY TOWNSHIP -

Rescue crews have suspended the search for a kayaker who went missing in Morris County.

The unidentified man went missing Monday after his kayak overturned in the Splitrock Reservoir in Rockaway Township.

The state police's marine services unit led an intensive search that lasted for several hours Monday once the man was reported missing. Poor visibility forced crews to suspend their efforts Monday night.

The searched resumed Tuesday with no results.

Crews are expected to be back out Wednesday to continue the search.
