SANTA BARBARA, Calif. >> The bodies of three California men, including a former Kauai resident, were recovered after a 24-foot boat capsized during a weekend fishing trip near California’s Santa Cruz Island.

A sheriff’s dive team ended its search for the night for the fourth person believed to have died in the capsizing. Three bodies were recovered after the boat from Channel Islands Harbor was reported overdue on Sunday and a search began. 

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department’s statement said the three victims recovered are all men from Ventura County: 37-year-old Sieng Sophorn Bun of Oxnard, 54-year-old Edgar Allen Isnec of Port Hueneme and 52-year-old Ramiro Alvarez Duarte of Oxnard.

Isnec was a former Hanamaulu, Kauai, resident, said Debi Austin, a friend and co-worker. 

The Sheriff’s Department said the dive team searched the waters until dusk Monday. It was unclear whether they would resume today.
