A jogger found the body washed up near Venice Pier around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Los Angeles police and county firefighters said they responded to a report of a body that matched the description of Gaspard.
On Sunday afternoon, Gaspard and his 10-year-old son were reported missing just before 4 p.m. after they were caught in a strong rip current. His 10-year-old son was rescued from the water by lifeguards.
A law enforcement source said Gaspard told rescuers to help his son first. The boy was evaluated by paramedics, but did not require hospitalization.
