DETAILS:
On 03/28/2014 at approximately 9:56 am, the Oxnard Police Department received a call of a missing adult female who made suicidal statements earlier in the morning.  The female was identified as Rosita Villegas.  At approximately 10:30 am, Oxnard Police Department officers located Villegas’s vehicle in the parking lot of Port Hueneme Beach Park.
 
Port Hueneme Police Department officers responded to the scene and used one of their canines to track Ms. Villegas.  The canine led officers from Ms. Villegas’s vehicle and onto the pier.  The following agencies then responded and assisted with the search of the surrounding beach and ocean:  US Coast Guard (Los Angeles and Oxnard stations), Ventura County Fire Department, and Oxnard Fire Department.
 
At approximately 2:00 pm, the US Coast Guard helicopter spotted Ms. Villegas’s body in the ocean approximately ½ mile west of the pier.  Ms. Villegas was pronounced dead a short time later by paramedics.  The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department and Medical Examiner responded and took over the investigation due to the location being in their jurisdiction.
 
At this point, no foul play is suspected but the investigation is on-going.  If anyone has information regarding this incident, you are encouraged to contact the Ventura County Sheriffs Department.
