Authorities say the U.S. Coast Guard and several Connecticut police and fire departments are searching for a kayaker missing in Long Island Sound near Guilford. The man called 911 on Thursday afternoon on his cell phone to report his kayak had overturned and he needed help, Coast Guard Petty Officer Annie Berlin said.

The connection cut off as he described his approximate location near Faulkner's Island, saying he was in the water in his life jacket.

Coast Guard crews from New Haven and Cape Cod were searching later Thursday with boats and a helicopter for the unidentified missing man. Police and fire crews from Guilford, Branford and Madison also were participating in the search.
