NAALEHU, Hawaii (AP) - The body of a missing Big Island fisherman has been found.

The Coast Guard and the local fire department began searching for 30-year-old Ceasare Moses Saturday afternoon. The Coast Guard says he was retrieving his nets near the Big Island's South Point when he was swept out to sea.

Lt. Leigh Cotterell says the Coast Guard received word from the fire department that Moses' body was found off South Point early Monday.

The aerial and ocean search covered more than 1,500 square miles.
