LAPUSH — The identity of the captain of a Neah Bay fishing vessel missing since the boat capsized Sunday has been confirmed by his family.

The Coast Guard search for Kenneth Martin was suspended at 9:30 p.m. Sunday after a 17-hour search.

Martin, skipper of the Sea Beast, was not seen after his crew got off the 52-foot commercial fishing vessel before it overturned in the Pacific Ocean about 14 miles west of LaPush early Sunday.

Martin was a member of the Makah tribe and brother of Bill Martin, who said Monday that his family would make a statement about the loss of his brother at a later time.
