A body found in the waters off Dana Point has been identified as the swimmer who went missing over Labor Day weekend.

According to investigators, 34-year-old Frank Daniel Austin of Rowland Heights disappeared while swimming at Salt Creek Beach on Sept. 2. The search for Austin was called off last Monday.

Coroner's officials say an autopsy is planned for this week to determine what caused Austin's death.

The body was found on Sunday about 100 yards off shore at Monarch Beach.
