    Search teams on Mt. Tamalpais Saturday morning found a woman's body in the same area where a Menlo Park woman was believed to be hiking before she was reported missing on March 30, a sheriff's lieutenant said.

    The body was discovered around 9:25 a.m. in Mt. Tamalpais State Park, where 33-year-old Magdalena Glinkowski was believed to have been hiking before her disappearance, according to Marin County sheriff's Lt. Doug Pittman.

    However, the body has not yet been identified, he said.

    About 120 volunteers from Bay Area law enforcement agencies resumed looking for Glinkowski this morning after the search was suspended on Monday.

    The search began again after a man reported that he may have seen Glinkowski while running in the park recently, Pittman said.

    "We felt it was prudent to go back and do an even more intense search," he said.

    Search dogs and volunteers from the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office spotted the female body discovered this morning.

    Detectives and personnel from the Marin County coroner's office were on scene this afternoon at the site where the body was found.

    Pittman emphasized that it is too early to say whether the body belongs to Glinkowski, who was reported missing after not being seen near her Menlo Park home since March 30. She left a note at home that day saying she was going for a hike, according to Pittman.

    Her car was found on April 4 abandoned near the Pantoll Campground and security camera footage from March 30 showed her walking across a nearby parking lot.

    The discovery of the car prompted the sheriff's office and other law enforcement agencies to launch a large-scale search for Glinkowski, which initially turned up no sign of her.

    According to her LinkedIn profile, Glinkowski works as a software developer for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and at Purple Encoding in the Bay Area. She previously worked for Microsoft and Intel.

    The online profile also states that she enjoys running and jogging and speaks English, Russian, Polish and French.
