The decomposed body of Marie Donson was found by a scuba diving charter boat, according to the San Diego Medical Examiner's office.
Donson was last seen the morning of Sept. 8, and a missing persons report was filed with the San Diego police. She was reported as high risk because she suffered from dementia, authorities said.
The body was found about 9 a.m., according to Lt. Andy Lerum. It was recovered and taken to the lifeguard's headquarters, at Quivira Basin on Mission Bay.
Lifeguards had also patrolled the ocean in search of Wesley Hilaire, a 4-year-old boy reported to have been abducted Sept. 12 in Mission Bay Park. The boy was found drowned in Mission Bay Sept. 14.
Lifeguards also looked overnight for a 21-year-old woman reported missing during a swim at 1 a.m. Sept. 14 at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach. She was found safe at home by police.
