A young boy’s body was found in the surf on the beach near 8th Street and Seawall Boulevard on Friday night, police said.
A person walking near Stewart Beach found the body in the surf around 5:35 p.m. Friday and called authorities, police said. The body had apparently washed ashore, Capt. Joshua Schirard said.
Police suspected the boy was between the ages of 3 and 5 years old, Schirard said. Authorities did not provide any other description of the boy. The boy was alone, Schirard said.
Police had limited information Friday night and said they were searching missing persons databases to see if they found a boy matching the description, Schirard said.
