Scuba Divers Find Woman's Body Floating in Mission Bay

A woman from Clairemont was found floating in Mission Bay Sunday morning.

Marie Donson, 77, was last seen the morning of September 8 when she left her home. Her daughter, who lives with her, became concerned when she didn’t return later that day.

A missing persons report was filed. According to officials Donson had mild dementia.

Members of a scuba diving charter boat found her body floating along the west end of Mission Bay Channel.
