South Bay Boulevard in Morro Bay reopened after search for suicidal woman

South Bay Boulevard in Morro Bay was closed for about two hours Friday evening as authorities looked for a suicidal woman in Morro Bay State Park.

A CHP helicopter found the 51-year-old woman, whose name was not released, unresponsive but alive, near a trail inside the park overlooking South Bay Boulevard.

Traffic on South Bay between Quintana and State Park roads was detoured from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. as crews and volunteers from six agencies looked for the woman. She was taken to a nearby hospital.

Authorities said the woman had threatened suicide.
