© 2014 American Physical Society. We have searched for proton decay via p→νK+ using Super-Kamiokande data from April 1996 to February 2013, 260kiloton·year exposure in total. No evidence for this proton decay mode is found. A lower limit of the proton lifetime is set to τ/B(p→νK+)>5.9×1033 years at 90% confidence level.
