Police are trying to find the origin of an unmanned canoe sighted in the Ovens River in Markwood, outside Wangaratta on Sunday.
A large piece of a kayak or canoe was seen near the Pioneer Bridges rest area on the Markwood-Everton Road about 9.30am.
Police believe the canoe may have been swept downstream in flood water.
The piece is described as dark orange in colour and appears to be a nose or tail.
Police haven’t received any reports of any missing kayakers. People should contact police.
