The Portage County Water Rescue Team was called to Tannery Park in Kent for an upside down kayak in the water.

No body was found with the capsized craft, but water rescue found a life jacket, paddle and cell phone in a waterproof Pelican case.

Kent police and fire responded to the scene after a woman called in an unusual object in the water under Summit Road bridge. She said she was walking near the bridge when a bright red object caught her eye.

Ravenna and Suffield fire departments responded to the scene as well.

Lt. Mike Lewis of Kent Police said the rescue team was following up on a possibly unrelated sighting of a man upstream closer to Franklin Mills Riveredge Park.
