Police said the body found in South Kitsap on Tuesday afternoon is believed to be that of Hevi Muhaz Tahir, a 17-year-old missing since January 28.

Ms. Tahir’s family has been notified, a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office press release states.

Noelle Morris of Manchester encountered the body near the 4700 block of Beach Drive East. She immediately called police, at 3:11 p.m.

Tahir was reported missing by her family after she did not return home from Olympic High School on Monday, Jan. 28. Her car was located in the early hours of Jan. 29 parked at Silverdale Waterfront Park.

Video footage shows Tahir entered the waters of Dyes Inlet that day. Police said no foul play is suspected.

An autopsy will be conducted to identify the exact cause and manner of death, the KCSO reported.
