Police identify man who died in night dive

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai police have released the name of a scuba diver whose body was found a mile offshore from Brennecke's Beach in Poipu.

Police say Bobby Tipple died on a night dive after he became separated from friends.

The Garden Island reports Tipple was reported missing Monday morning following the diving trip near Koloa Landing.

Coast Guard and Kauai Fire Department searchers found Tipple's dive light several hours later in shallow water, and shortly afterward, his body.

Law enforcement officials have not released a cause of death.
