SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — California authorities say a scuba diver found dead off a Santa Barbara County beach has been identified as an Oregon man.

The Santa Barbara County sheriff-coroner's office says the diver found Saturday in the water off Padaro Beach was 49-year-old William Frank Grgurich of Portland.

Residents walking along the beach spotted the man and pulled him ashore before sheriff's deputies and firefighters arrived.

The sheriff's statement says the man appeared to have been diving alone. The circumstances of his death remain under investigation.
