SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities in San Diego County are trying to identify a body that washed ashore at the North Island Naval Air Station.

The San Diego Union-Tribune says a Coast Guard pollution inspector was looking at some derelict boats that washed onto a beach when he found the body Wednesday morning.

A Coast Guard helicopter searched the area in case anyone else was in the water but didn’t find anyone.

The county medical examiner’s office says the body is that of a man in his 40s.

    My guess is it is someone who was trying to immigrate to the US and did not make the journey. “Derelict boats.”
