EMERYVILLE (CBS SF) — A woman’s body found on an Emeryville beach Thursday morning has been determined to be that of a reported missing person from the Fremont area, an Emeryville police sergeant said Friday morning.
At 7:14 a.m. Thursday, a passerby reported seeing an unresponsive person on the beach at Shorebird Park, which is off the western end of Powell Street on a stretch of land that juts into the Bay.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency crews.
Emeryville police Sgt. Brian Head said the death has been determined to be a suicide and not suspicious.
