The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a dead body was found in Eld Inlet near Madrona Beach Tuesday morning.
The body was found by a shellfish worker at about 8:40 a.m. off Madrona Beach Road Northwest and Sexton Drive Northwest.
Sgt. Carla Carter of the sheriff’s office said the body fits the description of a 40-year-old man from California who went missing July 22 in Olympia.
Carter said the county coroner’s office is working to confirm the identity.
