REGIONAL: Missing Oakland woman's body found in ocean

ELK, Calif. – The body of an Oakland woman who had been reported missing was found Tuesday floating in the Pacific Ocean off the Mendocino Coast.


A Coast Guard Helicopter crew retrieved the body of 64-year-old Cynthia Wyman from the waters off of Elk late Tuesday morning, according to a report from Capt. Kurt Smallcomb of the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.


Smallcomb said that Wyman had arrived at a friend's residence on Monday afternoon and said she was going to the beach. She later was reported missing and the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office began an investigation.


Although Smallcomb's report indicated that the incident was a suspected “self-inflicted drowning,” he also stated that the investigation into Wyman's death is continuing.
