HONOLULU - The call out for a missing person went out around 11 a.m. Wednesday morning when a green and white kayak was found without its paddler.

The hotel's pool attendant and a surf school contractor saw the man get knocked off by a wave and went to save him. Though the kayaker was not a guest, the Kahala Hotel says they try to be a good neighbor and watch the beach.

Employees working the hotel's valet told KITV4 the victim walked out on his own, went into an ambulance and left.
