This Thursday, July 15, an 18-year-old kayaker, seen in great difficulty near Sablons (Isère), disappeared. His kayak and some belongings were found later, about ten kilometers downstream, without him. This Wednesday, July 21, a body was recovered near Tain-L’Hermitage, in Mercurol around 3:20 p.m. It could be the missing young man.
An autopsy will be performed to confirm this, but there are indications that it is the kayaker. The Annonay gendarmerie had opened an investigation for a worrying disappearance. Despite the intervention of the diving firefighters and a civil security helicopter, the young man could not be found.
