A woman's body washed ashore at Georgica Beach in East Hampton Village Tuesday morning, according to Village Police Chief Jerry Larsen. Chief Larsen said a passerby noticed the body, that of a woman between the ages of 45 and 50, at 7:30 a.m. and notified police.
The body has been sent to medical examiners for further identification.
It seemed clear the woman was a victim of Hurricane Sandy’s dangerous surf, but no further details were available Tuesday afternoon. Chief Larsen said town police are investigating the possible link between the woman found on Georgica and a woman reported missing from Montauk on Monday night after she failed to return home from a walk on the beach with her dog.
