Body of missing opihi picker found off Molokai



A Maui Fire Department rescue crew yesterday recovered the body of a 42-year-old man who had disappeared in waters off the northern end of Molokai yesterday.

The man and a friend were reportedly picking opihi when they were swept out to sea. The friend was able to make it safely back to shore.

A rescue crew from the Hoolehua Fire Station located the other man’s body this morning about a quarter-mile offshore.
