FALMOUTH, Ky. -- A 41-year-old man who went missing Monday while kayaking on the Licking River has been found "alive and well."

Shane T. Williams was dropped off Monday morning in the Morgan area to kayak back to Falmouth.

Jim Thaxton, who runs a canoe and kayak operation and provided boats for the search, said Williams was found Tuesday morning.

"He is alive and well, so well that he wanted to finish the trip," Thaxton said.
