VicPD and Oak Bay police officers are on the scene in the 1800 block of Crescent Road responding to a call involving a deceased person in the area of Gonzales Beach.

Three officers are combing the public beach, where an area in front of roughly about 10 houses is cordoned off with police tape.

VicPD Const. Mike Niederlinski characterized the operation as a “marine incident.”

A helicopter was hovering over the bay early on and search and rescue personnel were also involved. At approximately 3:30 p.m. an ambulance and fire truck were seen coming from the Oak Bay portion of Crescent Road, but neither had their siren on.
