A woman in her 30-ies was reported missing at Manzanita yesterday 6-24-18 around 4pm. She was surfing. Rescue was initiated. Was she found?

Yeah, she swam in half a mile south and didn’t need assistance. I came in when I saw the flashing fire truck on the beach and the fireman said she had been in the water 20 minutes so I headed south in the small 3’ surf at least 2 miles downwind. By that time the chopper and jet skis were looking and I made some far out tacks back upwind. By the time I got back up to my car, they had called off the chopper, cutter and jet skis. Seems the 911 callers didn’t know the “victim” and were overreacting because of the Rockaway drownings the week before
