A woman who was reported missing earlier this month was found washed up on a San Mateo County beach last week, according to county sheriff's officials.

Ara Ghorgyi Ward, 48, was last seen the evening of June 12 with her boyfriend when they were at Montara State Beach, according to sheriff's officials.

Apparently the couple fell asleep and when the boyfriend woke up the next morning, Ward was gone, sheriff's officials said.

Authorities searched for Ward in the days following her disappearance until a woman's body was found on Pomponio State Beach in San Gregorio last Wednesday evening.

Around 7:15 p.m. deputies reported calls of a woman found in that area, and it is believed to be the body of Ward.

The cause of death has not yet been determined.

Ward was reportedly depressed and possibly suicidal, sheriff's officials said.
