Body found in waters off Honolulu Harbor

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found floating in waters off Honolulu Harbor Sunday.

The discovery was made at about 9:45 a.m. "A boater located a body floating in the ocean, about one third of a mile outside Honolulu Harbor," said Honolulu Police Lt. Walter Calistro. "He retrieved the body and called 911."

A boat crew from the Honolulu Fire Department then took the body and transported it to the Ala Wai Boat Harbor.

"The body is a Caucasian male, in his 30s, with long brown hair, and at this time we have no identification on him," said Calistro. He also said the man was wearing a shirt and shorts.

"We don't know the time, cause, or how long the person was in the water," said acting battalion chief Capt. Michael Chun of the Honolulu Fire Department.

Calistro said it appeared the body had just recently gone into the water, but did not want to elaborate further.

HPD said it has opened an unattended death investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or police.
