A kayaker is missing from South Lake Tahoe. 

Pham Du Van Than (Dan) called a friend at 9:15 Thursday morning to tell him he was going kayaking and camping in the Lester Beach area. As of 6:15 that evening Dan hadn't been heard from so a search began. 

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office ended their search at midnight and began again at 6:00 a.m. Friday morning. 

Dan is described as a Filipino man, 5'7", 150 lbs with a muscular build. He has short dark hair and multiple tattoos on his shoulder and chest. 

Dan was in a forest green kayak, 10 feet long. It isn't known if he had a backpack or a life jacket. 

If you know anything about Dan's whereabouts or see someone matching this description please call 9-1-1 or 530-621-6600.
