Officials are investigating the cause of death of a man who was found dead, floating in the water in Avila Beach. The man is identified as 37-year-old Chad Henry Hebert. He was found yesterday morning at about 9:10 off Olde Port Beach.
He was believed to be staying on a relative's boat moored in Port San Luis Harbor.
A kayak was discovered upright and empty near Harford Pier several hours earlier.Officials say Hebert may have been using the kayak to shuttle back and forth from the boat to the beach.
Hebert's body showed no obvious signs of trauma. Foul play is not suspected.
