site_logoKTVU News is reporting that the U.S. Coast Guard recovered a body from the San Leandro Channel, which runs between Alameda and Oakland International Airport. They’re saying the Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau is working to identify the man using dental records.

The television station is reporting that a boater called the Coast Guard at 12:25 p.m. to report that a man’s body was floating face down in the channel, and that the Coast Guard responded and retrieved the body. The station reported that an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, but they’re saying foul play is not suspected.
