SEASIDE - Following a search that lasted from sunrise to late morning, the Clatsop County Search and Rescue Volunteers found a missing man dead on a beach one mile south of Seaside Cove, Wednesday.

Matthew White, 25, of Seaside had been reported missing at 1 a.m. Wednesday by his father who had last seen his son riding a bicycle in Seaside on Sunday, Clatsop County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Dan Laughman said.

Family members found White's bicycle at the surfers' parking lot at the Seaside Cove, then reported White missing at 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Searchers then found White around 9:50 a.m. on the beach below the north side of Tillamook Head. The cause of death is still unknown, pending a medical examination, Laughman said, but foul play is not suspected.

Hughes-Ransom Mortuary is in charge of funeral arrangements.
