A Portland woman was found dead on a Lincoln County beach Thursday morning, police say.

Annette Fagan, 58, washed ashore between Devils Punchbowl and Otter Rock, but police said they don’t yet know how long she was in the water.

Police initially put out a call Friday morning asking for help identifying Fagan.

Oregon State Police would not comment on whether foul play was suspected in the case, or whether Fagan had previously been reported missing.
