The United States military has identified a Marine lost at sea off the coast of the Philippines as a New Hampshire native.

Officials say Cpl. Jonathan Currier went missing on Aug. 9 from the USS Essex in the Mindanao Sea. He was part of the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit based out of Miramar, California. Currier's body was not found following a five-day search of 13,000 square miles. The military declared him dead Friday.

Officials say Currier enlisted in the Marine Corps on August 2015 and graduated from Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Paris Island, that November.

Currier's awards include the National Defense Service Medal and Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
