    A Putnam County man who embarked on a kayak trip from a flooded field is missing.

    Indiana Conservation Officers began searching for 48-year-old David Pritchett last night around 10 p.m. The search ended unsuccessfully at 2 a.m. this morning. Searchers began searching again this morning.

    Department of Natural Resources officials say Pritchett set out for the kayak trip with his dog around 6:30 p.m.  last night. His trip was supposed to be on Big Walnut Creek near Putnamville. The creek is flooded from heavy rain.

    DNR say Pritchett was last seen wearing a short-sleeve tan button-up shirt, blue pants, brown hip waders and was possibly wearing a yellow life jacket. The kayak was green.
