Man’s body found in ocean at Fort Funston
A man disappeared in a boating mishap off Ocean Beach a week before, but so far there is no official word on whether the body is that of the missing man. The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office will perform an autopsy on the body.
The San Francisco Examiner reported that both the National Park Service and the San Francisco Police Department responded to the beach.
A person walking a dog on the beach discovered the body in the surf under 1 to 2 feet of water at about 7:20 a.m. U.S. Park authorities and San Francisco police responded and brought the body above the surf line, according to Alexandra Picavet, a spokeswoman for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
The man had been wearing dark jeans and boots, and the body was taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office, Picavet said.
A commenter on the Examiner’s website identified himself as the person who found the body, but that person could not be immediately reached for further comment.
