Cops confirm body of missing 22yo Avery Danley found in bay

A coroner has confirmed that the body of missing man Avery Danley was found in an estuary of Morro Bay.

The grim discovery was made a week ago and several weeks after the 22-year-old full time boat-dweller inexplicably vanished.

Local authorities said an autopsy was conducted to determine just how Avery Danley died, but indicated they don't suspect foul play in his missing persons case and presumed drowning.

Danley's cause of death hasn't been announced, but the outgoing and "free-spirited" youth was last seen alive dining with acquaintances aboard their docked vessel in Morro Bay on January 21, 2016.

Those individuals reportedly told investigators he returned to his own craft after dinner in a kayak early that same night.

The unmanned craft was later found floating in bay waters, although Danley's kin has stated this wasn't the first time it had ever drifted away from the main boat where he lived year round.

They have scheduled Avery's memorial service for 1:00 p.m. February 20th at Westside Ministries, 950 Columbia Avenue, Turlock. If you would like to assist them with their funeral costs please visit gofundme.com/averydanleysmemory.
