Dead body found off Pismo identified as missing Shell Beach man

The body of a Shell Beach man reported missing earlier this week was found floating in the ocean off Pismo Beach on Saturday, according to Pismo Beach Police.

No foul play is suspected in Dylan Winebrenner’s death, said police, although the cause of death has yet to be determined.

Police responded to the scene Saturday after a report came in just before noon of a body in the water 200 yards off Dinosaur Cave Park.

Winebrenner, 32, was reported missing Friday after friends found his 15-year-old dog alone on a remote section of coastline in Pismo Beach.

A roommate last saw Winebrenner at 8 p.m. Sept. 25, according to police.

Winebrenner appears to have been in between jobs and a permanent residence, according to police. He grew up in the area and was most recently living with friends.
