Body found near Seal Beach believed to be missing swimmer
Authorities said they believe the body, found Thursday at the west jetty of Anaheim Bay, may be that of Jowayne Bindford.
The Long Beach man was among four men who went into the ocean off the gated community of Surfside on Aug. 31 during a high surf and strong rip tide advisory. Three of them made it to shore; Bindford did not.
The U.S. Coast Guard launched a search but called it off the next day.
