San Mateo County sheriff investigating body that washed ashore on Pescadero State Beach

Authorities in San Mateo County are investigating a body that washed ashore Sunday afternoon on Pescadero State Beach.

The sheriff's office and the San Mateo County Coroner are investigating Sunday's death. 

As of Sunday afternoon, the person had not been identified.
