Upside down kayak reported in river

Spokane Valley Fire Department crews are responding to a report of an upside down kayak in the Spokane River just west of Harvard Road. I'll report more details as I hear them.

10:46 a.m. update: Emergency responders are in place at Harvard, Barker and Flora by the river, others are searching the shores.

10:58 a.m. update: An orange kayak has been spotted just over a mile east of Harvard Road. Firefighters will check the river all the way to Stateline to check for a person.

11:07 update: Members of the swift water rescue team are entering the river at Murray Road to do a search on the water.

11:12 update: A Sheriff's Deputy has told firefighters that he talked to the kayak's owner yesterday, so it doesn't appear that anyone is in the river. It sounds like firefighters will try to recover the kayak so no one else calls it in to 911 as a boater in trouble.
