The body of a missing 77-year-old Clairemont woman was found Sunday morning in the waters off Point Loma.

The decomposed body of Marie Donson was found by a scuba diving charter boat, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner‘s office.

Authorities had earlier reported that the body was of a 21-year-old woman reported missing during a swim earlier Sunday at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach. She was found safe at home by police.

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 issues, authorities said.

The body was found about 9 a.m., according to Lt. Andy Lerum. It was recovered and taken to San Diego Lifeguards‘ headquarters, at Quivira Basin on Mission Bay.

Lifeguards also patrolled the ocean in search of Wesley Hilaire, a 4-year-old boy reported to have been abducted Saturday night in Mission Bay Park. The tot was found drowned in Mission Bay this morning.
