Woman found dead at Sutro Baths identified

Medical officials have confirmed that the woman found dead on the rocks at Sutro Baths on Monday night is a 23-year-old Santa Clara resident who was declared missing and suicidal by her family.

Yen-Bao Pham was last seen Saturday afternoon, according to a report issued by the San Francisco Police Department. Her family filed a missing person report Sunday, after she failed to return from her job in Mountain View the night before.

Pham left a suicide note with specific instructions, and her family searched for her Saturday night after they located her unattended car on San Francisco’s Ocean Beach, a site she frequently walked with her sister, according to the SFPD release.

Her body was discovered Monday at 5:15 p.m. by Coast Guard officials at the site of Sutro Baths, a former swimming complex near Sutro Heights on the northern tip of Ocean Beach.

The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office has not determined the cause of death yet.
