Daniel Bobis

The body of missing American surfer Daniel Bobis has been found in Indonesia.

Local fisherman found the body of the New York teacher who disappeared on Sunday after surfing a 10-foot wave. A member of the search and rescue team said the body was found 20 miles from where Bobis was last seen, according to the Associated Press.

On the Daniel Bobis Info Facebook page, Jamie Imerese wrote that Bobis' family was informed last night that a body had been found up the coast by a fisherman.

"They immediately traveled together in hopes that it was a coincidence. ... It was not. They positively identified Danny," Imerese wrote.

Family, friends and students have flooded the Facebook page with condolences messages for the family.

Helicopters, divers and boats had been searching Indonesian waters for Bobis, who disappeared while on a surfing vacation with his wife.

Danny Bobis went missing on Sunday and his disappearance received attention from all over the map - from students and co-workers at the NY school where he worked, to the surfing community, to the music industry, and all the way up to national mainstream media. RIP Danny, you were taken too soon. You can watch an ABC news story that ran earlier this week, below...

They fail to mention that Dan was a 3rd degree black belt and was an awesome teacher and friend. I trained with him he was a real good fighter, among other things
