Body Discovered Near Fort Funston Landslide Location

A body has been discovered near the location of a landslide that buried a woman at San Francisco's Fort Funston last month.

Authorities have not confirmed if the body is that of 22-year-old Kyra Sunshine Scarlet, who was buried on Feb. 22 when a cliff gave way.

Scarlet was with another woman and a dog when tons of sand gave way and came sliding more than 100 feet, carrying them along. The other woman and dog were rescued.

Fort Funston is part of the federal Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is about 10 miles south of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is set above steep cliffs that are about 200 feet above the San Francisco beach.

The U.S. Park Police is the lead agency.

Further information was not immediately available.
