Poulsbo PD searching for missing man

The Poulsbo Police Department is seeking the community’s help in searching for a missing man, 40-year-old Daniel Yates.

Yates, of Everett, is described as a white male around 5’6” and 150 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

At around 11 p.m. on Sept. 3, Poulsbo officers responded to reports of a possibly intoxicated man rowing a boat in Liberty Bay. The officers conducted a search of the bay by boat and with a police drone but were unable to locate the subject. Due to no further information to continue their investigation and no knowledge of the identity of the subject at the time officers cleared the scene.

The following day, just after 5 p.m. officers received information that a dinghy had been abandoned on the shore of a private residence in Liberty Bay. Through interviews with friends in the area, the officers were able to identify the owner of the dinghy as Daniel Yates. Officers also learned that Yates had a sailboat moored in the bay, but were unable to locate him.

Officers believe the two incidents are related and have filed a missing persons report for Yates.

Throughout the evening of Sept. 4, Poulsbo PD conducted secondary searches of Liberty Bay as well as searches of the downtown Poulsbo area.

Overnight, air and marine resources from the U.S. Coast Guard assisted in the search.

This morning, Sept. 5, marine assets from Poulsbo, Port Orchard, Suquamish, and Bainbridge Island police departments, along with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Port of Poulsbo and the Poulsbo Fire Department are continuing the search for Yates.

If anyone has seen or had contact with Yates they are encouraged to contact their local Police Department or Poulsbo Police Department at 360-779-3113.
