Police are investigating after a dead body was found Thursday in the water in the Carl E. Moses boat harbor. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) has identified the deceased as Alexander Johannesen. The 30-year-old had not been seen since Wednesday evening.

There currently are some vessel traffic restrictions at the harbor so divers can canvas the area, but DPS expects to complete canvassing today.

DPS treats all unattended deaths as suspicious and is sending Johannesen’s remains for an autopsy.
