UPDATE: Everyone is safe and accounted for
6 were in the party. 4 of them are missing. 3 guys and 1 female.
All are wearing life jackets.
Sounds like a couple of them are in the water near Shaw and Mill rd, but not confirmed.
Sounds like 2 of them are in a difficult spot to get to, and firefighters said they may be there for awhile, while they try getting to the location of the kyakers.
Just before 2 pm today several emergency personnel were dispatched for a water rescue on the Kishwaukee river near the mile marker 15.75. A couple of people in kayak boats have overturned and are stuck in the river.
