The U.S. Coast Guard recovered two bodies from the Pacific Ocean Friday night after a boat capsized.

The Coast Guard was called just before 5 p.m. It deployed a boat crew and a helicopter to search for possibly two more people, but determined that only two people were on the boat and ended the search late Friday night.

The Coast Guard said the waves were seven to eight feet high and winds were 10 mph to 15 mph.

The boat's owner is reportedly from McMinnville, the Coast Guard said.
