Missing kayaker’s body found in sea

The body of a missing kayaker was found yesterday off Windward Oahu.

Firefighters found the man’s body at 2:51 p.m. His identity has not been released.

"It’s a hard thing on Mother’s Day," said Honolulu Fire Capt. Robert Main.

The man was kayaking Saturday afternoon with a group that made it to the Mokulua Islands off Lanikai.

They were resting on the rocks when a rogue wave washed two people off, and only one of them made it back to the island, Main said.

The man’s friends couldn’t find him and called for help at 6:08 p.m. Firefighters suspended their search at about 7:35 p.m. because of darkness.

The Coast Guard scoured the sea overnight with a helicopter and a vessel.

Firefighters resumed their search at dawn with a helicopter and two personal watercraft. Divers with the Fire Department also looked for the man underwater.

Firefighters found his body in the ocean outside the Mokulua Islands, and a helicopter brought it back to shore.

Shooting suspect to appear in court

A 31-year-old man is scheduled to make his initial appearance in Honolulu District Court this morning in connection with the shooting of a man in an Aiea parking lot last month.

Joseph R.M. Pasion was charged over the weekend with second-degree attempted murder and several firearm- and ammunition-related offenses. He was being held at the main police cellblock in lieu of $350,000 bail.

Police said Tuesday they wanted to question Pasion about the April 30 shooting in the parking lot of Aiea Bowl. Officers arrested him Friday at a hotel near the airport.

An argument at the bowling alley at about 1:15 p.m. April 30 prompted security personnel to ask a man to leave. He did so, but returned with a gun and shot a man in his 30s, an apparent stranger, police said.

The victim went to the hospital in good condition with a shoulder wound.
