From Tyler Thorsen's Facebook page:

This is Emilio Martinez from McAllen he was kayaking at Mustang Island Friday as the front was coming in. He capsized a couple of times and was able to get back up in but the third time the kayak got away and he swam safely back to shore. On Saturday word came out on Facebook that a kayak had been found over 70 miles away some 50 miles down the National Seashore I was told. The good news is Emilio's $3000 kayak was returned to him by some honest, caring fishermen who brought it to the Sharkathon Weigh In Sunday.
