LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A male body has been found near the area where an 18-year-old Las Vegas man was swept off rocks into the ocean at a Southern California beach last week.

Capt. Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority said Wednesday that the coroner will have to determine whether the body is Anthony Parnell.

The active search for Parnell was called off last Thursday, four days after he was swept away while exploring a cave-like outcropping with man-made saltwater pools in Laguna Beach.

The Orange County Register (https://bit.ly/17gXPQh) reports that a homeowner saw the body on Wednesday and it was recovered from knee-deep water in a rocky area of Shell Beach in Three Arch Bay.

Lifeguards recovered the body from the water and took it to a sheriff’s patrol boat.
