Cape Town - Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a woman whose body was found in the water near Camps Bay days after being reported missing.

An inquest docket had been registered after Zeenid Misbach, 48, was recovered from the surf on Wednesday.

Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut confirmed she had been reported missing in Wynberg on April 17.

Camps Bay community police forum chairperson Bernard Schafer told News24 a body had been spotted by a passer-by in Bali Bay, a small stretch between Bakoven and Camps Bay.

"The person was floating about five to ten metres offshore and it wasn’t known if it was male or female," he said.

The police’s dive unit and the NSRI later recovered the body.

Traut said an autopsy would be conducted to determine the cause of death.
