Capsized kayak found near where Cobb man went missing in Alabama

Authorities in Alabama found a capsized kayak on Logan Martin Lake they believe may belong to a missing Cobb County man, St. Clair County Assistant Sheriff Billy Murray said Monday. 

The kayak was found near the lake’s dam off County Road 54 near the Kelly Creek boat launch, Murray said. Logan Martin Lake is about 35 miles east of Birmingham.


A search team is actively looking for James Lewis Lowery Sr. of Mableton, who was reported missing over the weekend.

The 69-year-old man was believed to have been kayaking alone in the area.
