aua‘i fire rescuers recover two bodies off Kaua‘i waters, locate overturned vessel
Firefighters recovered two bodies off Kaua‘i waters on Friday afternoon.
The bodies have not yet been identified, but officials believe they are two of the three fisherman who went missing in waters off O‘ahu’s North Shore over the weekend.
On Friday morning, personnel from the state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) notified Fire officials of a life jacket that was found by a boater in waters roughly five miles off Port Allen. The life jacket was confirmed to be from the vessel that went missing off Haleiwa on O‘ahu over the weekend.
Upon notifying the fire department, DLNR launched a boat to conduct a sea-based search while KFD conducted an air-based search using Air 1. The search turned up no sign of the missing fisherman throughout the day.
Then shortly before 4 p.m., a fisherman notified the Kaua‘i Fire Department of a male body found unresponsive roughly two to three miles off Anahola.
Firefighters launched Whaler II from Waika‘ea Small Boat Harbor in Kapa‘a to recover the body. While heading back to shore after recovering the body, the crew was notified by Air 1 that an overturned vessel had been located roughly a half-mile away.
Whaler II was conducting a search of that vessel, believed to be the boat that went missing off Haleiwa, when they were then notified by Air 1 of a second male body located roughly two miles off Wailua at approximately 5:30 p.m.
Whaler II then headed to Wailua to recover the second male body and brought both men back to Waika‘ea Small Boat Ramp at approximately 7 p.m.
Kaua‘i police are now working to positively identify the bodies and notify family.
