A body pulled from San Diego Bay two months ago was that of Elizabeth Sullivan, a 31-year-old Navy wife and mother of two who disappeared from her Point Loma home two years earlier, authorities said Wednesday.
Sullivan’s body was found in the water off the 2600 block of Farragut Road on Oct. 6., and homicide detectives have since launched an investigation into her death, San Diego police Lt. Mike Holden said.
Sullivan went missing on the night of Oct. 13, 2014, and last made contact that day via text message, according to San Diego police. Her phone was later shut off.
In the time since her disappearance, Sullivan’s family members had enlisted the help of a private detective, distributed missing person fliers and set up social media pages dedicated to the search efforts. A GoFundMe.com account was set up to help fund the efforts and raise money for a reward for information leading to her whereabouts.
A family statement posted in October 2015 to a Facebook page dedicated to finding the “beloved mother, daughter, sister, cousin and friend” said the investigation had “gone completely cold.”
“We have found no leads. Neither have the police or a private investigator,” according to the statement.
Family members said in an update on the fundraising site that all local hospitals, morgues, jails, homeless and women’s shelters have been checked several times and that her information had been added to a national law enforcement database.
