A multi-agency, multi-day search for a Potomac River kayaker was called off on Sunday after it was determined he had simply ditched his kayak and gone home — "oblivious" to the fact that authorities became alarmed after finding his kayak floating upside down. The Montgomery County Police Department first requested the public's help on Friday in identifying the owner of the abandoned kayak, which was near the Anglers Inn boat ramp south of Great Falls. Earlier in the day, witnesses at the Great Falls observation deck had reported seeing a man in the kayak, and told police that it had "appeared that he may have needed assistance.

The gunshot wound suffered by a Virginia man while kayaking in Pasadena in April might have been self-inflicted, Maryland Natural Resources Police said Monday. Police said the man shot himself at his home in Virginia last week and is hospitalized. Natural Resources Police investigators now believe his wound from April might have been self-inflicted. David Seafolk-Kopp, 56, of Reston, Va., was treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after he was shot in April. Seafolk-Kopp was in a kayak in Main Creek off of Bodkin Creek on the night of April 12, and he told police he saw a red reflection on the water before he was shot.

RESTON, Va. -- Approaching 30 years old, the Baltimore-Washington area's two premier planned communities are showing signs of a middle-age identity crisis.In their infancies, both communities were hailed as examples of visionary community planning that would create a more vibrant model of suburbia for the nation.But with age has come a restiveness that has spawned talk in both well-off suburbs of the need for an even newer model, though an old idea: incorporating as full-fledged cities.In Reston -- where 57,000 residents live on 7,400 acres 18 miles west of Washington -- two efforts to transform the community into a municipality failed in the 1980s.

A couple of disturbing images are floating around in my head after last night's episode, but before we get into all of that, let's pick up at last week's cliffhanger. Olivia's mom is alive, which isn't the biggest surprise in the history of this show. What is interesting is that Rowan held her prisoner for 20 years in a hidden cell in what looks like a very crappy hospital, for reasons that aren't 100 percent clear, yet. Charlie drops Quinn off at work, which is definitely not the most covert way for them to meet.
