Officials: Woman found under Guerneville Bridge committed suicide

A woman found below the Guerneville Bridge on Sunday was determined to have committed suicide, according to Sonoma County sheriff's investigators.

The woman was lying facedown on the beach when sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene at 9 a.m. The woman made contact with family members and indicated her intent to end her life, according to Lt. Dennis O'Leary.

Officials said they believe the woman then jumped from the span.

The Sheriff's Office did not release the woman's name Thursday.
