The body of Marisha Cheong, missing since December, washed up on a Breezy Point beach on Saturday, February 16.

Police have identified the woman whose body washed up on a Breezy Point beach Saturday as 24-year-old Marisha Cheong, who went missing from her Jamaica residence two months ago, said the NYPD.

According to CBS New York, Cheong’s live-in boyfriend was supposed to pick her up at a Forest Hills subway station on December 19, but she never showed up.

There was no sign of the young women until her remains washed up just across from 121 Bayside Avenue  this weekend.

It’s unclear how she died, but the Office of the Medical Examiner is expected to release the cause of death within the next few days.
