The body of a missing kayaker was found Tuesday night at the waterline of the Pacific Ocean west of the Seaside Turnaround. The deceased was later confirmed to be Matthew Manley, age 42, of Tualatin, Oregon.
Manley was reported missing on Monday, January 1, around 2:45 p.m. after having gone crabbing from a kayak in the Seaside Estuary near the mouth of the Necanicum River. Late that afternoon Seaside Fire and Rescue as well as the U.S. Coast Guard responded to assist with the search for Manley.
The U.S. Coast Guard continued searching for Manley through the evening hours with helicopter crews, and overnight by boat until 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, at which time the search was called off.
