RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County authorities have recovered the body of a missing 50-year-old diver off the rocky coastline near where her belongings were found a week ago.

Coroner's investigator Elissa Fleak says an autopsy will be conducted Sunday on Rebecca Weiss, an experienced free-diver. She was reported missing Aug. 11 by her husband, Alan Weiss.

The body was found Saturday by recreational divers about 200 yards offshore near the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, a favorite dive spot for Rebecca Weiss and her husband.

Alan Weiss told sheriff's detectives he last saw his wife driving away from their Marina del Rey home wearing a wetsuit.

The Los Angeles Times says Rebecca Weiss' mother and brother were near the resort passing out fliers when the body was found.
