Boater Finds 1 Body, 2 Life Jackets in Waters Off Mission Bay Shore: USCG

The U.S. Coast Guard launched a search operation off the coast of Mission Bay Monday after a body was found floating in the water with signs of a potential second body.

At around 11:30 a.m., a boater discovered the body floating nearly 6 miles from shore and contacted lifeguards with San Diego Fire-Rescue.

A life jacket was strapped to the body, SDFD said. A second life jacket was found floating in the area, prompting the Coast Guard to search for a possible second body.

The search for a possible second body was called off at 5:30 p.m.

The Coast Guard Cutter Sea Otter assisted in the search.
