The body of a diver missing off Makaha Beach Park was found Friday, 23 miles southeast of Nawiliwili.
Harold “JJ” Jackson, 50, was reported missing on Monday at 8:15 p.m. about a mile off Makaha Beach Park.
The Coast Guard said a commercial tug going from Kauai to Oahu noticed a strobe light at 5:20 a.m. Friday, which was attached to Jackson’s bouyancy control device. Jackson was not with the equipment, but the discovery prompted the search in a new area.
At 1:17 p.m., a body was recovered by a Coast Guard crew from from Kauai and transported to Nawiliwili Harbor.
