A body was recovered from the waters in Bodega Bay this morning, a Sonoma County sheriff's lieutenant said.

Tourists spotted what appeared to be a body at the base of the cliff at Bodega Head and called the sheriff's office at 7:40 p.m. Tuesday, Lt. Dennis O'Leary said.

The sheriff's office sent a helicopter to the area that night but "due to the darkness, we couldn't do anything," O'Leary said.

At first light this morning, a helicopter was sent out to the same area and the remains were found and retrieved around 8:30 a.m., he said.

O'Leary said the body has not yet been identified and it is not yet clear how long it had been in the water.
