Authorities were notified of the discovery Monday afternoon.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office reported the man was found  near the north end of Pigeon Point Road where it meets Highway 1.

The man has since been identified as Carl Deng, 63, of San Francisco.

Still missing is Ping Tao Tsang, 55, who was among four men who set off from a point near Candlestick Park around 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

Five hours later, a wave flipped their 23-foot fishing boat about a mile out from Pigeon Point Lighthouse.

Tsang, 46, and Deng, 63 were among four boaters,who started swimming to shore when another wave crashed down on them. Only the two men wearing life jackets made it back to land.

The Coast Guard said as of Tuesday morning it did not have any immediate plans to resume the search.
