The body of a woman was discovered by hikers Monday morning at Fort Funston. The woman's remains, which have not been identified, were found not far from where Kyra Sunshine Scarlet was believed to have been trapped in a landslide last month.
The body was found at the base of a cliff about a quarter mile south of Sloat Boulevard, as KTVU reports. Crews responded to the scene at 8 a.m. Monday.
The cause of death or the identity of the body are not yet known.
The search for Scarlet, who went missing and was presumed buried after she and a friend, along with a dog, were seen climbing a cliff above the beach at Fort Funston on February 23.
Search crews, who had to suspend their searches multiple times due to nightfall, storms, and high tides, finally ended their efforts on March 1, saying that they believed her body had likely been washed out to sea.
Scarlet was identified as the missing woman on February 28. The 22-year-old woman was a resident of Oakley, where she lived with her dog and a boyfriend. She was originally from Utah.
