Kauai police have found the body of a man who was reported missing.

Mark Pressly, 65, is a part time resident of Kauai.

He was reported missing Thursday night and his body was found Friday afternoon.

Kauai firefighters did an aerial search and located Pressly’s Chevy van.  It was suspended on a cliff between the Waimea Canyon and Puu Hinahina lookouts.

Officials say the van appeared to have been driven into a restricted state park area when it veered off the roadway, landing approximately 700 feet below on a ledge.

The case remains under police investigation.

However, foul play is not suspected at this time.
