Lost Department of Natural Resources diver is identified

The diver from the state Department of Natural Resources who was lost while diving off Bainbridge Island has been identified as David D. Scheinost, 24, of Puyallup.

The search for Scheinost, who is presumed dead, resumed today and is being conducted by the Bainbridge Island Police Department and supported by the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, Kitsap County Sheriff’s office and DNR law enforcement.

Scheinost was a geoduck compliance diver with the DNR’s Aquatic Resources Division, according to the DNR.  He was part of a DNR dive team sampling for paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) southwest of the Restoration Point geoduck tract when the incident occurred Tuesday, according to the DNR.

Scheinost, a 2010 graduate of the Divers Institute of Technology in Seattle, was hired by the state in February.
