INITIAL REPORT: The discovery of a woman's body on Sunday in a cove along the Oregon coast has left investigators with more questions than answers.

Oregon State Police (OSP) worked with the U.S. Coast Guard and Lincoln County Sheriff's Office to recover the body in the water of a cove just north of "God's Thumb" around 5 p.m.

The woman is described as a white female adult with long, dark brown hair. She was about 5'7" and 190-200 pounds.

OSP said that it is continuing to investigate "the specifics of her death," but the agency is looking for help from the public in identifying the woman.

"If anyone has any information on a recent missing female, matching this description, please call (800) 452-7888 and reference case number SP 19-058230. Detective Carla Urbigkeit is the lead investigator," OSP said.
