Emergency crews on Friday resumed the search for the missing 64-year-old Louisville man who went kayaking in the Kentucky River with friends, but they did not locate him.
Emergency Management Director Deron Rambo said the crews planned to continue the search for John Imes on Saturday.
"We kind of take it day by day," he said.
On Wednesday, the firefighters and emergency workers found Imes' kayak, paddle and hat.
