A 70-year-old San Francisco man who was Tuesday afternoon has been identified as Dennis Fox, according to the Santa Cruz County coroner's office.
Fox had left aboard a 40-foot fishing boat named "Sunrise" from Half Moon Bay on July 25.
At 1 p.m. Tuesday, Fox was reported overdue, prompting a search mission to find him.
A helicopter crew and a 47-foot lifeboat from U.S. Coast Guard Station Monterey responded and discovered the boat about 20 miles southwest of Santa Cruz.
A rescue swimmer was lowered onto the fishing vessel, where the Fox's body was found in the cabin, according to the Coast Guard.
Fox's body and the Sunrise were brought back to Santa Cruz.
