The San Francisco Medical Examiner on Thursday confirmed the death of 55-year-old Jeffrey Vandergrift, the host of a popular Wild 94.9 radio morning show who disappeared last month.
Police and firefighters said they pulled human remains from the water near Pier 39 at about 5 p.m. Wednesday evening.
“At this time, we have no evidence of foul play,” San Francisco Police Sgt. Adam Lobsinger said in a statement. Law enforcement turned the body, which at that point had not been identified, over to the medical examiner to conduct an investigation.
Wednesday’s tragic turn of events came roughly three weeks after Vandergrift’s wife , Natasha Yi, said she believed her husband would not be coming back. Yi, who is also a host at Wild 94.9, said “personal information” uncovered during the search suggested that Vandergrift would not return.
A figure on Bay Area radio airwaves since the 1990s, Vandergrift was known for hosting “The JV Show” weekday mornings from 6 to 10 a.m. He was last seen at about 10 p.m. on Feb. 23, near his home on the 200 block of King Street near Third Street, in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood.
Officials at the examiner’s office did not provide additional details Thursday morning.
