North Bend man found dead off Bellevue boat launch

A 54-year-old North Bend man was found dead in Bellevue along with his truck in the water at the Sweyolocken boat launch, according to a Bellevue police news release.

Police were called around 9 a.m. to investigate the Ford F-150, which had been seen submerged about 60 feet off-shore at the boat launch in the 3000 block of Bellevue Way Southeast.

Divers from the Bellevue Fire Department, Mercer Island Marine Patrol Dive Team and Search and Rescue swam out to the truck, which they found empty. They towed it out, and then searched the water for about a half hour and found the man seven feet underwater.

The man had not shown up to work in Bellevue this morning, the release said. His wife said she had texted him a couple of times but he hadn’t replied, the release said.

Bellevue detectives will continue to investigate; family members have been notified and the King County Medical Examiner will release the man’s name after an examination.
