KOKE‘E — Police located a body of a male subject in a vehicle on the cliff side in Koke‘e on Friday afternoon.
The body is believed to be that of Mark Pressly, a 65-year-old Kansas man who was reported missing on Thursday night.
Pressly is a part-time Kauai resident and was last heard from about 6:30 a.m. Thursday and was believed to be in the vicinity of the Waimea Canyon lookout at that time.
KPD personnel aboard Air 1 began an aerial search of that area Friday morning and located the missing man’s Chevy van about 11 a.m. suspended on a cliff between the Waimea Canyon and the Pu‘u Hinahina lookouts. The van appeared to have been driven into a restricted state park area when it veered off the roadway landing about 700 feet below on a ledge.
The case remains under police investigation, however, foul play is not suspected at this time.
