Body of Ethiopian man who is identified as Yetbarek Demoze is recovered from Lake Union, reported Seattle based Komo News citing police report.

He was reported missing early Sunday.

His wife is cited as saying that Demoz came home around 3:30 a.m on Sunday and that he told her he was going to give friends a ride home.

The report added that Demoz was on board of a 25-foot boat that belonged to Demoze. Not much is known at this point as to what went wrong.

It seems that no other body is recovered; Komo News report did not indicate on the conditions of people who were on the same boat.

Yetbarek Demoze,36, was married and a father of two children.

Shakespeare Feyisa who says that he was a close friend of the deceased told the news source that he was supposed to be in the same boat and was to be picked up by Yetbarek.

“As a community we are heartbroken …When anything happens in our community (Demoze) is the first one to lend a helping hand, to donate money, to be there for all of us ” Shakespeare Feyisa is quoted as saying.

Autopsy examination result is pending.

None of them seemed to know how to drive the boat so they towed them to shore and it was obvious that they were very upset and sad
