Additional details

Eryk told a friend he was going kayaking off the coast of Grand Isle in the Gulf of Mexico. Around 1pm on 9/10/12 a fisherman saw a man in a kayak and went to check on him. The man said he was fine and did not need a ride back to shore. A kayak matching Eryk's was found inverted in the water around 5pm the same day. Eryk's car was found parked at a marina nearby.
