Missing Go-Pro found belonging to man who drowned at Malaekahana

LAIE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The missing Go-Pro camera of the man who drowned at Malaekahana has been found.

Family and friends of 38-year-old Dante Biacan are relieved after a dive search team found the camera that captured the last moments of Biacan's life.

After seeing news reports on Hawaii News Now, members of a local community service group called "GCB" spearheaded the search party even though they had never met Biacan before.

Search group leaders say it was only after seeing our news story when they decided to create a Facebook page to get volunteers and help the grieving family.

Past president of GCB club Hyrum Nihipali who is a friend of Kanoi Cabrinha who found the Go Pro, said they were glad to be able to give the family some peace.

"It was very exciting. First of all, anything with the ocean, it kind of seems like a needle in a haystack, and so once we actually found it, of course everyone was extremely happy, and that the family could find their peace.

Apparently the hero who found the camera was putting out a buoy early in the morning when he saw it just laying at the bottom of the ocean.

Biacan's family has not yet looked at the content of the video yet.

They are hoping it will give some sort of clue of what caused him to drown.
