FANNIN COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) -- A man who was missing for several hours in a Fannin County Creek.was found safe Thursday afternoon.

Deputies were called to the Caney Creek off FM 1020 after family members told them their relative has been gone for hours.

When deputies arrived, they spotted the man's truck and began searching for him, but soon after, he showed up on his kayak.

"He's safe and everything was good it was an outcome of a good story," said Fannin County Deputy Lt. Frank Deater. "And we're glad the outcome was this way this time rather than what it could've been another time."

We spoke with the kayaker off camera, he said he stayed out kayaking longer than normal to practice his hobby of photography.
