BELIZE CITY (AP) — The government of Belize continues to search for an American man who went missing this week.

Police on Belize's Ambergris Cay identified the missing man as Shane Leesman, 29. They did not provide information on his hometown, but local media reported he was from Texas.

He went kayaking on April 29 with another American, Bradley Evans Josker. Josker told police the craft capsized amid rough waves.

Josker clung to craft and was rescued, but he lost sight of Leesman.

Belize's coast guard said Friday it is continuing the search.
