Missing Oregon boater's vessel found with engine idling

Postby WB Staff » Fri Nov 15, 2019 10:01 pm


The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for a missing boater whose vessel was found unattended in the Pacific Ocean late Tuesday.

Dan VanCleave, 59, was reported overdue Tuesday after he didn’t return home prior to sunset, according to the Coast Guard. His truck and trailer were found that night at a boat basin in Brookings, and an aircrew later located his vessel 1.7 miles south of the Chetco River Jetty.

Authorities arrived to find the 16-foot boat’s engine idling. VanCleave’s cellphone and other personal items were found, but no one was aboard the boat.
