LOST: Boat and paddle on The Numbers, Arkansas River

My dad was being a dumbass and decided to run the Numbers by himself today, Friday June 18th. He swam at No. 5 and lost his kayak and paddle down the river. He just got the boat recently so I can't even remember the model, but it's blue. The paddle is a blue and white Werner. I know the paddle has his name and phone number written on it, but I don't think the boat does yet.
He's going to be running downstream tomorrow in another boat to see if it got hung up somewhere, but if someone finds it, please let us know. He doesn't have a cell phone so please email/PM/call me and I will relay to him.
Dinner and a warm, fuzzy feeling will be yours if you can get the boat back.

Thanks for the update earlier. From you post I knew before he did that someone had it and was trying to call him.

Thanks to the unknown boaters who found my paddle, and left it against a tree above Frog Rock. I found it Saturday morning when running the Fractions section looking for my gear.
Also thanks to CKS in B.V. for their help, and for contacting me when my boat was found.
And finally a big thanks to "Brent" and his kayak group for retreving my boat at rapid six on Friday, and contacting me afterwards so I could get it from them .
So, even though I have run the numbers section hundreds of times and several times solo, it may not be a good idea to run alone. Now if I can just get my kayaker son "Turbo2" to go boating with me on Fathers Day weekend, then I won't be tempted to act so recklessly.
By the way, I got a new Magic Marker for Fathers Day and marked my equipment.
