A Coast Guard boat on routine patrol was flagged down around 3 p.m.by a 21-foot recreational vessel, Coast Guard Petty Officer Frank Iannazzo-Simmons said.

A Coast Guard crew responded in a motorboat and also called the San Francisco Fire Department to ask for help to get closer to China Beach than would be possible with a boat.

Although the Coast Guard could not definitely confirm the body was that of the missing swimmer, searches for the 24-year-old were suspended after the find. One was using a stand-up paddleboard, the other was a kayaker who had said he had capsized, according to the fire department.

Later that night, the Coast Guard received a report from someone on a ferry who spotted a drifting kayak.

The Coast Guard says the girl and her stepfather were taken to local emergency responders.
