THE body of a 28-year-old woman was discovered early yesterday morning along Lautoka's Marine Drive.
West police media officer Naina Ragigia said the deceased was an iTaukei who was believed to have been a beggar from Navoci, Nadi.
"Witnesses had seen the deceased around the Lautoka seawall at 7pm where she was sitting," Mrs Ragigia said.
"Later, the witnesses said she had fallen over the sea wall. Her body was later found floating near the sea wall."
Mrs Ragigia said the body was at Lautoka Hospital mortuary awaiting post-mortem examination.
"At this point, we are trying to establish family contact in Nadi and our teams in Nadi are working on this."
She said the police had also encountered many children playing unsupervised near the sea wall.
"We have also seen many university students gathering near the sea wall in the night to use the internet and meet friends.
"During this Easter break, we will be out in numbers at the different picnic spots and parks and we are urging parents to supervise their children."
