Search and rescue teams looking for a missing woman from Shrewsbury have found the kayak she was last seen in.
The red Avocet kayak was found on the beach at Morfa Nefyn on north Wales's Lleyn peninsular, nearly 20 miles from where Elizabeth Ashbee vanished.
The 53-year-old became separated from four colleagues in difficult rocky waters on Sunday afternoon at Ynys Feurig, or Starvation Island, close to Rhosneigr.
Coastguard and police search crews discovered the mother-of-two's kayak, which was not damaged.
Ms Ashbee's family have been informed of the discovery.
Holyhead RNLI all weather lifeboat resumed its search, and two RAF helicopters with a North Wales Police helicopter continued to search.
The hunt is covering Caernarfon Bay, particularly from Lleyn to Morfa Nefyn, Fort Belan and Llanddwyn.
Coastguard rescue teams from Aberdaron, Porth Dinllaen and Llandwrog also searched the bay coastline. Coastguard teams were also broadcasting pan signals - to alert shipping that the search had resumed and to ask for help.
Ms Ashbee's colleagues from Shrewsbury Canoe Club travelled to the area to help look for her.
