SEASIDE, Ore. -- The body of Matthew Manley, who went missing while fishing for crab from a kayak near the mouth of the Seaside Estuary, was found Tuesday night.
The body was discovered at 6:12 p.m. Tuesday on the edge of the ocean on Seaside Beach by the turnaround. It was later confirmed to be the 42-year-old missing kayaker from Tualatin.
Authorities announced earlier Tuesday they had suspended the search for Manley. He was first reported missing on New Year's Day around 2:45 p.m.
Manley had last been seen in his kayak near the mouth of the estuary, where water temperatures are about 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The U.S. Coast Guard assisted with 47-foot motor lifeboats and helicopter crews deployed from Station Cape Disappointment. Seaside Fire and Rescue also participated in the search.
Seaside Det. Guy Knight said police are still looking for the missing kayak. Officials say they believe it may have been removed the beach on Jan. 2. Anyone with additional information about the incident should call Det. Knight at 503-738-6311.
