A body found on a Santa Barbara County beach over the weekend is being identifed as that of a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo student.
The body of a young woman was discovered just after 8 a.m. Saturday by a jogger near Campus Point, in the UC Santa Barbara area.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department officials say the woman is that of 18 year old Giselle Esme Ayala, of Santa Rosa. Investigators say she had gone to Isla Vista with a group of friends Friday night to take part in spring break parties. The last time her friends reported seeing her was around 11 Friday night.
They reported her missing Saturday night. It led to the identification of the body of the 18 year old woman, because she had no identification on her, and up until then no one had reported her missing.
There’s no word on the cause of her death. Detectives aren’t releasing any other information at this time.
