A human leg found in the water along the North Carolina coast is believed to belong to a kayaker who went missing on New Year's Day.

SWANSBORO, N.C. (WTVD) -- A human leg found in the water along the North Carolina coast is believed to belong to a kayaker who went missing on New Year's Day.

Onslow County Sheriff's Office said teens exploring Huggins Island near Swansboro found the leg over the weekend.

A preliminary investigation made Onslow deputies believe the leg belonged to Warren Liner, 73. Liner vanished on the first day of 2022 while kayaking alone near Bear Island; his life jacket and kayak were found but his body was not.

An official report, including results from a DNA test, remains pending.
