Search Called Off for Kayaker Missing Off Miramar Beach

Los Angeles man was one of two who capsized off Miramar Beach on Sunday.

The search for a kayaker who capsized off Montecito on Sunday was called off Monday afternoon.

Daniel Zembrosky, 24, of Los Angeles, was reported missing after a two-person kayak capsized in high winds Sunday afternoon off Fernald Point east of Miramar Beach. One kayaker made it to safety, but a helicopter search conducted by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Coast Guard yielded just the kayak and a paddle.

The search, which was suspended after nightfall Sunday and resumed at dawn Monday, was called off at 3 p.m. Monday.

Late Monday, a MySpace page for a 24-year-old Dan Zembrosky of Los Angeles lists his status as “is kayaking.” The last log-in at the site was Saturday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
