Search continues for former Army Ranger lost at sea off Belize coast

Posted May 6th, 2014 @ 5:36am

A former Army Ranger described as a genuine “war hero” is missing in the waters off Central America, where he disappeared off the coast of Belize while kayaking during a vacation.

Wrangler Leesman, 29, and a friend were in a kayak off the coast of Belize on May 1 when poor weather caused it to flip. Rescuers with the Belize Coast Guard later found Leesman’s unidentified friend alive within hours, but there’s still no sign of the Texas native.

“There is hope because Wrangler is very fit and a ... soldier in the U.S. Army,” a post on a Facebook page dedicated to Leesman’s safe return reads.
