WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. — A human foot has been found washed up on a Whidbey Island beach.

Island County Sheriffs Detective Ed Wallace tells the Daily Herald that a beach walker found the right foot this morning. Officials say the foot is small and likely belongs to a woman or a child. They believe it was in the water for less than two months.

Investigators are checking missing reports. DNA tests are pending.

Officials do not believe the foot is linked to a series of human feet found in shoes in recent years in nearby British Columbia waters.
