Five kayakers in Tajikistan were reported missing on Monday. The American men experienced trouble while traveling along the Balandkiik River. They sent out an emergency beacon on September 30. However, it took rescue teams several days to find them.
Ben Luck, Cooper Lambla, Matt Klema, Nate Klema, and Charles King, are experienced kayakers. They often travel to remote locations in Boliva, Chile, India, and Peru, for extended trips.
