UPDATE: Owner reconnects with lost kayaks on Williams Lake

Kayaks picked up by boater July 9 full of water in the middle of the lake

A Williams Lake woman is thrilled to have her kayaks back after losing them on the lake earlier this month.

“Thank you to the wonderful family who rescued my kayaks that came untied from the dock during a storm,” said Samantha Biggs, who contacted the Tribune last week in hopes of connecting with the boater who was last seen picking them up.

Biggs has lived on the lake for the last 11 years and said she always keeps extra kayaks at her house so when her family comes for a visit, no children are left out without a kayak to use.

On July 9, Biggs’ niece and a friend used the kayaks but the boats managed to get away on them before she realized the kayaks weren’t properly tied up

“My niece feels so relived we got them back. She was feeling horrible about losing them. All the kids are excited that we can all go on our summer adventures together again,” said Biggs.

“I truly appreciate everyone’s help in helping connect me to the family who found them.”
