HONOLULU – The US Coast Guard and the Honolulu Fire Department are searching for a Seattle man, who reportedly was paddle boarding near Kuhio Beach on Wednesday.

A press release from the Coast Guard identified the man as 32-year-old Niel Bode of Seattle:

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Command Center received notification from the Honolulu Fire Department about 7:30 p.m., reporting that Neil Bode had not returned after renting a stand up paddle board near the Waikiki Wall.

The paddle board company contacted HFD after Bode didn’t return by closing time at 5:15 p.m. He left behind his wallet, keys and cell phone.

Bode is Caucasian and described to be 5’8″ in height, 180 lbs and wearing boardshorts. The paddle board is reported to be aqua green in color with a black mat. He also had a red paddle.

An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point launched to search the area along with a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boat crew from Coast Guard Station Honolulu, the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Galveston Island and a helicopter and boat crew from HFD.

HFD has also queried surfers and visitors on the beach.
