Firefighters find 2 bodies believed to be missing fishermen

Overturned boat found 25 miles offshore

 

Firefighters recovered two bodies Friday off the shore of Kauai believed to be two of three fishermen who went missing last weekend.

County officials said in a news release that the bodies had not been identified, but a life jacket found was from the missing fishermen's boat.

The first body was found about 4 p.m., about two to three miles off Anahola. The second was spotted about 5:30 p.m. about two miles off Wailua.

Kauai police are working to positively identify the bodies and notify family.

The fishermen — Jensen Loo, Clint Oshima and Derek Tomas — were reported missing late Sunday when they didn't return from a fishing trip.

A boat believed to be the one the fishermen were in also was found.
