A woman’s body that washed ashore at Gilgo Beach this week has been identified as that of a 31-year-old Queens woman who was reported missing from the area three months ago.

Suffolk County police said the victim was Natasha Jugo of Queens Village, whose belongings and car were found near Ocean Parkway after she disappeared in March.

People walking on the beach saw Jugo’s body wash up on Monday night and called 911.

Police have said that they do not suspect a link between the woman’s disappearance and the discovery of 11 sets of human remains along Ocean Parkway in recent years.
