The body of a man believed to be a fisherman missing since last week was discovered Sunday morning near the Port of West Sacramento.
Paul Beverly's family members had been searching for him since a boat he was on with a friend and cousin capsized last Wednesday.
West Sacramento Police Department Sgt. Ryan Lukins said officers discovered the body about 10:30 a.m. on Sunday just south of the port in the Sacramento River's deep water channel.
Dozens of people spent Saturday searching for Beverly on the riverbanks and in boats. His family on Facebook wrote that Beverly's body was recovered.

"Paul has been found, he came home to us on Sunday our family day, the day of the Lord. Thank you for bringing you home to us," the family wrote.
The Yolo County Coroner's Office has not yet officially identified the body. Lukins said officers are "fairly confident" that the body is related to the boat accident.
The other two passengers on the boat were wearing life jackets and were not harmed.
Beverly, 54, of Oakland was described by friends and family as an experienced fisherman and father to a young son.
"He was strong and able-bodied. This is a shock," his fiancée, Theresa Vidaurri, told ABC 10.
Her coworkers are raising money to help the family on the website GoFundMe.
