LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) — Firefighters have recovered two bodies off the shore of Kauai, and they believe they are two of three fishermen who went missing last weekend.

County officials say in a news release the bodies have not been identified, but a life jacket found was from the missing fishermen's boat.

Kauai firefighters found the male bodies Friday.

The first was found about 4 p.m., about two to three miles off Anahola. The second was spotted about 5:30 p.m. about two miles off Wailua.

Kauai police are working to positively identify the bodies and notify family.

The fishermen — Jensen Loo, Clint Oshima and Derek Tomas — were reported missing late Sunday when they didn't return from a fishing trip.

A boat believed to be the one the fishermen were in also was found.
