LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A body was recovered in the ocean off a Southern California beach in the same area where a person was found dead in the water a week earlier.

A search was launched Friday following reports of a missing swimmer in the Table Rock area of Laguna Beach.

It wasn’t immediately known if the person found dead on Saturday is the swimmer reported missing the previous day.

It’s the third death along Orange County’s coastline in the past week. A 25-year-old man was found dead in the surf off Huntington Beach on Aug. 25.
