The body of a 39-year-old Ocean Beach woman was found Monday floating near the Ocean Beach Pier nearly a week after she reportedly fell from the pier. The children of Mary Kathleen Bearl reported her missing last Tuesday, Deputy Coroner Penne Hammerstead said. Her body was spotted near the pier two days after the accident but washed back out to sea before rescue workers could recover it, Hammerstead said. Lobster fishermen saw the body again Monday about 200 feet west of Del Monte Avenue, Hammerstead said. The death was ruled an accidental drowning.
