PORTLAND – A man’s body was pulled from the Rocky Pointe Marina across from Sauvie Island Wednesday, police said.

Investigators identified the man as 59-year-old Steven Gifford.

The body was spotted just after noon at the north end of the middle marina along NW St Helens Rd and the harbormaster was able to hold him there until river patrol deputies arrived.

The cause of death was listed as accidental drowning.

Gifford was previously reported missing on January 13 and had been last seen on Friday night January 11 around 10 p.m. on the Rocky Pointe marina docks, police said.
