A 63-year-old missing Lihue fisherman was found dead Wednesday below the pier at Ahukini Landing, Kauai police said.
Don Jeffries III body was found in the water shortly after a missing person call was made to police when an unattended car was found in the parking lot at around 11 a.m.
Fishing equipment and keys were found nearby on the pier, with no one in the area, police said.
Firefighters, including a rescue crew, Air 1, a dive team, an engine company and a battalion chief, as well as the Ocean Safety Bureau East Roving Patrol Unit responded and searched the area where his last location was believed to have been.
Kauai police closed the parking lot while they searched the area.
Ocean Safety lifeguards and fire personnel discovered his body in the water shortly afterward, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jeffries’ body was taken to Wilcox Medical Center.
There were no signs of foul play. An autopsy is scheduled to determine the exact cause of death.
