STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A 27-year-old man still has not been found after he went missing while kayaking in the waters off of Staten Island last Saturday, according to police.

 

Jonathan Derbyshire, 27, of Huguenot Avenue, was last seen on May 2 at about 3 p.m. in a kayak on Raritan Bay.

 

A spokesman for the NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner of Public Information said on Saturday that there were no updates in the investigation.

 
 

Police previously asked for the public’s help to locate Derbyshire.

 
 

Police described Derbyshire as white, about 5′10″ tall, weighing about 185 pounds with a muscular build. He has hazel eyes, brown hair and a tattoo of an American flag tattoo on his forearm. He was seen wearing a grey bathing suit.

 
 

The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its “all night” search last Sunday morning for the kayaker that went missing in Raritan Bay.

 
 

NYPD divers were part of a search team for the Derbyshire in the area of Arbutus Avenue and Nicolosi Drive near Wolfe’s Pond Park, Prince’s Bay, police said.

 
 

The Coast Guard was called at about 3:12 p.m. on May 2 when three kayaks -- each with one person on board -- all overturned in Raritan Bay.

 
 

A Good Samaritan rescued two of the kayakers from the water, but Derbyshire was unaccounted for when emergency crews arrived on the scene.

 
 

After receiving the call on Saturday, Coast Guard Station Sandy Hook launched a response boat that arrived on scene and began searching for the third kayaker.

 
 

People with information are encouraged to contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477 (TIPS) or for Spanish, 1-888-577-4782 (PISTA). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Well that's just sad.   

Depending on a few things it could be anyone on this forum.   

27.....that's way too young.

Doesn’t look like this happened recently, though.  Looks like it happened in May of 2020…. Sad nonetheless.  Always wear your PFD and please dress appropriately for the water temperature (with immersion in mind) early in the season.

Swimsuit on May 2nd. Survival time in that cold water is minutes.  How many of us have seen someone underdressed in the parking lot or on the water and thought that they were exactly this waiting to happen? The below photo was also 1st week in May on RB a few years back. These kids heading out don't even have PFDs. A good wake from the typical oblivious powerboat and they're swimming.

Body was recovered not far from the area where he went over.    It was a real nice day temp in the 80 but water was still very cold. They were in Bull sh-t kayaks and no life jackets on.

I see the overcrowding and lack of PFD's every season on the water.

It doesn't matter which part of Massholia, stupid is rampart.  

Idiocracy is here and has been for quite awhile.   

I vote for Terry Crews for president.

I tried to tell them, I was standing there with my own teenage son, but they were uninterested.

His body washed up on shore about a week later.

So, regarding the header, his remains are no longer missing.
