Hawaii County firefighters recovered the body of a man in his 30s or 40s at the bottom of an 80-foot cliff along the North Kohala coast Friday evening.
Firefighters responded just before 7 p.m. after shoreline fishermen saw the body in an area called "Hapu," near Kapanaia Beach, an area accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicles.
An unattended vehicle was found on the cliff above the rocky shoreline.
Police are investigating the cause of death.
