Family renews call for help finding missing kayaker

CENTER CITY, Minn. - A family is renewing its call for help in the search for a man who went missing while kayaking on the St. Croix River in Chisago County.
 
The sheriff's office says a kayak was found on shore the night of July 12 on the Wisconsin side of the river, with a tackle box and vehicle keys inside. A vehicle belonging to the owner of the kayak was located unoccupied at Interstate Park in Taylors Falls.
 
Ground, water and air searches the next day turned up no sign of 49-year-old Vue Her. His family filed a missing person report with the Oakdale Police Department.
 
Her's family held a press conference with the Chisago County Sheriff's Office on Saturday to renew their call for help. The sheriff's office says it is still searching for Her.
 
Her is described as an Asian man, 5 feet tall and 135 pounds.
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities, who also are asking people to keep an eye out for missing pink and green fishing poles.
