An air crew with the US Coast Guard (USCG) helped the Michigan State Police locate four kayakers who were reported missing on the Manistique River Saturday night.
The air crew was from the USCG Air Station in Traverse City and received a call from police around 8:30 p.m.
Using night vision goggles, the Coast Guard spotted three adults and one child. The kayakers were rescued by local law enforcement.
At the time of the incident, the Coast Guard helicopter was refueling at the Schoolcraft County Airport and conducting a separate search in Lake Superior.
