Missing kayaker found dead in Seaside

SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say they have found the body of a kayaker who went missing while crabbing in the Seaside Estuary.

The Seaside Police Department says Wednesday that 42-year-old Matthew Manley’s body was spotted at the waterline of the Pacific Ocean west of the Seaside Turnaround.

Manley had been missing since New Year’s Day when he was last seen on his kayak near the mouth of the Necanicum River.

Authorities are still looking for the Tualatin man’s kayak.

They say it may have been taken from the shoreline sometime Tuesday and they are asking anyone with information to call the Seaside police.
