The body of what authorities believe to be a missing 42-year-old San Diego surfer was found at 3:30am this morning in the kelp of Tourmaline Beach. According to NBC 7 News, the surfer went missing yesterday in La Jolla, California, and his fiancé notified authorities at 10pm last night when he didn’t return home from an afternoon surf session. Lifeguards reported spotting a surfer swimming out to sea unusually far from where the waves were breaking, notifying the US Coast Guard as he continued paddling. Strangely, his wetsuit was found tied around to his surfboard unharmed.
San Diego Lifeguard Lieutenant John Everhart stated that at first examination, it seemed that the wounds on the body resembled a shark attack that possibly occurred after death.
Investigations are still underway. For more information, visit: NBC7News.com.
