The family has identified the body of diver Nicholas Spotkaeff, reported missing since Saturday.

Spotkaeff’s body was discovered by a private fishing vessel, and found floating 10 miles offshore from Kuilima.

The Coast Guard retrieved the body and docked at Haleiwa Harbor, where the family and local emergency medical personnel were waiting.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family members during this extremely difficult time,” said Capt. Shannon Gilreath, Coast Guard Sector Honolulu commanding officer. “Our gratitude goes out to all those involved in the search who helped bring it to closure.”
