SAN MATEO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a body that washed ashore on a San Mateo County beach has been identified as a 16-year-old runaway. Dental records confirm that Cathy Qiu of Richmond is the person found Sunday at San Gregorio beach. The Albany High School honors student reportedly ran away from home in late September.
