Except for a Civil Air Patrol flyover of Cape Resurrection and Day Harbor shorelines, search efforts to find a woman missing in a kayak near Seward have ended.
Alaska State Troopers and the U.S. Coast Guard searched for Kristin Snyder, 35, of Anchorage, for three days without success.
Troopers found the woman's Toyota parked at Miller's Landing in Seward with a note inside the vehicle saying no one should search for her. A trooper report said the note stopped short of saying Snyder was going to kill herself.
A kayak was reported missing from a nearby boat rental business and campground.
"The only formal search effort still pending is an open mission by the Civil Air Patrol to fly the shoreline of Cape Resurrection and Day Harbor, as well as the Cape Aialik shoreline as soon as aviation weather permits," troopers said Tuesday.
Snyder remains listed as a missing person, her photograph has been widely distributed to businesses in the Seward area, and boaters in Resurrection Bay have been asked to be on the lookout for clues such as a kayak or kayak fragments, paddles, clothing or scavenger activity that might point to remains.
