POULSBO — The Kitsap County Coroner’s Office has confirmed the identity of a body recently recovered from Liberty Bay as Daniel Yates.

According to Poulsbo Police Chief Dan Schoonmaker, a body was recovered from Liberty Bay by emergency responders, around 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The body, Schoonmaker said, was found just outside the northern end of the Port of Poulsbo Marina.

On Sept. 4 the Poulsbo Police Department requested the public’s help in searching for Yates, a 40-year-old Everett man, who had been reported missing after his rowboat washed ashore on Liberty Bay. The previous night the Poulsbo Police Department was called to Liberty Bay to investigate reports of a possibly intoxicated, unknown subject rowing a boat in the bay. Officers immediately conducted a search of Liberty Bay by boat and with a police drone; however, no one was located.

According to friends, Yates also went by the name of “Daniel Talbott.”
