UPDATED: Police Find Missing Woman Dead in San Francisco Hotel Room, Name Man Who Disappeared on Devil's Slide a Person of Interest

Still unclear whether he left Devil's Slide on foot or by other means

After discovering the body of Colleen Waterman, 47, in a hotel room on Lombard Street in San Francisco Thursday afternoon, police are now searching for her husband, Billy, who has been named a person of interest in her death.

The San Francisco medical examiner's office ruled Colleen's death suspicious, said San Francisco police Lt. Lyn Tomioka.

San Mateo County sheriff's deputies found the car of the missing Riverside County couple parked and unoccupied on Highway 1 near Devil's Slide Thursday afternoon, the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office said.

Search and rescue crews and other sheriff's personnel who were reported missing on Monday, the sheriff's office said. Their car was found at about 2:30 p.m.

Highway 1 was closed in both directions for part of the search but was reopened as of about 9:30 p.m., the California Highway Patrol said.

Tomioka said that although the San Francisco police have identified Billy as a person of interest in the death investigation, there could be other people also linked to Colleen's death.

Billy is a white 51-year-old man who is 6 feet tall and weighs 160 pounds. Police said he has blue eyes and red or balding hair.

It's unclear if the Watermans left the Devil's Slide area on foot or by other means.

Anyone with information about their location is asked to call the sheriff's office at (650) 363-4911 or the anonymous San Francisco police tip line at (415) 575-4444. Anonymous tipsters can also text a tip to San Francisco police at TIP411.
