    National Park Service lifeguards and rangers found Alicia Scott Lee's body in a rocky area in the waters off Muir Beach Overlook Saturday, March 21.

    The body of a 17-year-old girl was found Sunday morning in the  waters near Muir Beach in Marin County, about two miles north of another  beach where she had disappeared early Saturday, a ranger said.
         
    National Park Service lifeguards and rangers found Alicia Scott  Lee's body in a rocky area in the waters off Muir Beach Overlook at about  10:45 a.m., National Park Service Ranger George Durgerian said.

    Durgerian said there is no indication of foul play.

    Rescue teams had resumed their search for Lee at about 8 a.m.  after searching Saturday as well.

    Lee was reported missing at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday, though she  was last seen nearly 12 hours earlier at about 1 a.m. near a bunker by  Tennessee Beach after getting separated from her friends, according to  Durgerian.

    A group of students from Marin high schools were camping over the weekend.

    Authorities interviewed her friends and determined Lee appeared to  somehow get briefly separated from the group overnight, Durgerian said. The  friends told authorities they weren't sure she was missing until the morning.

    He said the Marin County coroner's office has been notified of the  discovery of Lee's body.
