MOLOKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A body recovered Sunday morning off Molokai waters has been identified.
Police have identified the man as 43-year-old Ruben J. Villa of Maui.
Authorities say Villa was picking opihi with a friend Saturday at Anahaki Beach on the north side of Molokai, when a wave swept them out to sea.
One of them made it back to the beach, but the Villa did not.
Crews later found Villa's body about a quarter mile off shore.
