A beachgoer stumbled upon a pair of sneakers washed ashore on a California beach and a human leg was inside, police said.

The man stumbled upon the blue Saucony shoes around 2:45 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26, on the beach at Point San Pablo Marina in Richmond, police Sgt. Aaron Pomeroy said in an email to McClatchy News.

Pomeroy said when a beachgoer found the shoe, it contained what appeared to be a human leg and bones.

Richmond police believe the human leg came from a man who died jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge or the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge several months ago.

The shoes were in good condition and were a size 6 or 7, he said.

The race and gender of the human foot could not be immediately determined, but investigators are looking into possible disappearances, he said.

It is not uncommon for human body parts such as fingers and feet to wash ashore in this area because of the high tide from the two bridges, he said.

The foot was turned over to the Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office.

Anyone with information about the man’s foot can contact Pomeroy at 510-620-6616 or send an anonymous tip to 510-307-8177.

Richmond is about 20 miles north of San Francisco.
