The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office reported on Tuesday that a human head found on the shore of Ten Mile Beach north of Fort Bragg is believed to be that of Randall Fry.
The head was discovered on Friday by a resident walking on the beach.
Fry was killed by a Great White shark on August 15 in the vicinity of where the remains were found.
Fry, 50, of Auburn, was diving with a friend near Kibesillah Rock near Westport, around 4:30 p.m. on that Sunday.
The two divers were preparing to dive again after coming up for air when Randall's companion reported seeing a "big fish" swim up between them and then blood in the water.
The witness high-tailed it to their vessel where another friend was waiting, but Fry was nowhere to be seen.
A search got underway involving the United States Coast Guard, the Westport Fire Department, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue, but darkness brought an end to the effort.
However, the search resumed the following morning and shortly afterwards the team located a body lying on the ocean floor under 15 feet of water.
