Body of missing fisherman found off Marin County coast

MARIN COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- The family Ryan Viall has confirmed that his body was recovered yesterday off the coast of Marin County. Viall was on a boat that didn't return to Bodega Bay on Friday after a fishing trip. Three of the boaters are from Santa Rosa.

The four aboard were supposed to have a leisurely salmon fishing day on the 21 foot boat. Viall 28, was youngest aboard. His friend, 39-year-old Dave Brennan, remains missing.

Coast Guard crews recovered the bodies of 59-year-old Richard Hargreaves of Santa Rosa and 61-year-old Diane Kelly of Windsor.

"I know one of them that was recovered did not have a flotation device, no," said Trevor Armstrong with the U.S. Coast Guard.

This has been an extensive search, with crews covering dozens of miles in the ocean. It began Friday night because someone aboard the fishing boat didn't show up for a 5 p.m. appointment. So the Coast Guard was called in.
