BODEGA BAY, Calif. (AP) - Searchers have recovered the body of a third person who went missing following an apparent boating accident off the Northern California coast.

The Marin Independent Journal reports that Sonoma County sheriff's officials spotted the body of 28-year-old Ryan Viall, of Windsor, on Wednesday on the shoreline of Point Reyes National Seashore. Viall was among four people who set off on a fishing trip near Bodega Bay on April 17 in a 21-foot boat.

Crews found the boat overturned on the rocks near Tomales Point in Marin County shortly after it was reported overdue. Authorities say the bodies of two of the people on board - 61-year-old Diane Kelly and 59-year-old Richard Hargreaves, Jr. - were also discovered.

One boater remains unaccounted for.
