Newport Bay body identified

The Orange County Coroner's office has identified a decomposed body found floating in Upper Newport Bay as that of Swee Ai Oh, 50, a Newport Beach woman who was reported missing earlier this month.

Oh's body was found in the water Sunday morning about 150 yards west of Jamboree Road, according to the coroner.

The body was discovered by fishermen at about 7:15 a.m. near Bayview Way, said Newport Beach police Sgt. Keith Krallman.

Oh, was last seen leaving for a walk near the Back Bay in at about 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 12. Her family reported her missing to police the next day. She was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, gray pants and possibly a watch.

It is not clear whether Oh's family has been contacted about Sunday's discovery, Krallman said. There was no immediate indication as to what might have been the cause of death.

According to a report on KTLA News, officials do not suspect foul play.
