DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - Recovery efforts to find a missing kayaker have been suspended at Little River Canyon National Preserve. Park rangers tell us a 911 call was placed just before noon Saturday, about a kayaker pinned under a rock in Little River.

Several agencies participated in the search, which was re-classified as a recovery effort at 1:30 p.m.

Recovery attempts were suspended at 4:00 pm due to rising river levels.

The recovery will pick back up Sunday morning.
