Man’s body found in Everett’s Port Gardner Bay

A man’s body was pulled from the mouth of the Snohomish River Monday, and fire officials believe it may be that of a man still missing from a boating accident earlier this month.

A boater spotted the body floating face down in the river, where it meets Port Gardner Bay, at about 5 p.m., said Everett Fire Chief Bob Downey. The police department retrieved the body, and is conducting an investigation.

“We’re speculating that it could be the person who went missing after a boating accident a few weeks ago,” Downey said, referring to a May 14th incident in which a 12-foot boat with two men aboard sank. One man was rescued by a couple in a Zodiac; the other man could not be found, despite an extensive search.
