NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) -- A body found in the waters off Newport has been identified as that of a fisherman who has been missing for nearly three weeks.

Norman Grant was reported missing on Feb. 9.

Cell phone records and video from local surveillance cameras put his last known location near a fishing boat that he worked on called the F/V Prolifik.

Grant's body was discovered about 80 feet south of the Hallmark Fisheries dock when another boat ran into something underwater on Feb. 26.

No cause of death or other details have been released.
