Santa Barbara County authorities are investigating the discovery of the body of a man in the ocean off the Gaviota coastline.
The body was spotted by a beachgoer just before nine last Saturday morning near what’s known as “Poison Oak Point.” It was recovered by teams from the County Sheriff’s Department, and the County’s Search and Rescue Team.
County officials say there are no signs of foul play. An autopsy is still pending. They say the man is from the Santa Barbara area, but his name is being withheld pending notification of family members.
