Olympic National Park officials say a hiker found a badly decomposed body of a man among driftwood on a Jefferson County beach.
The Peninsula Daily News reports that the Jefferson County sheriff's office believes the body is that of a missing Hoh tribal fisherman whose boat capsized last month in the Hoh River.
The body was found Thursday on a beach 300 yards north of the river's mouth. The body was recovered Saturday.
Jefferson County Sheriff's Chief Criminal Deputy Joe Nole says there's a high probability the body is that of 21-year-old David Hudson Jr., pointing to the state of decomposition and location of the body.
Never miss a local story.
Nole says they will show Hudson's family pictures of the body to try to identify it.
