She wanted to go to the beach to swim on Saturday because her friend had gone out of town, but she drowned.
Some witnesses claimed to have seen her struggling in the water and crying for help, but she was not seen again shortly after.
Residents along the coast then sought the help of Community Opinion Leaders, who offered libations to the gods in exchange for the dead body's retrieval.
The body washed up on the beach about five minutes after the ritual was completed.
The body has been deposited at the Saltpond Hospital Mortuary, and police inquiries into the incident have begun.
The general public is also being asked to come to the Saltpond Mortuary to identify the body.
To avoid the spread of the Coronavirus disease, the government has imposed a ban on visiting beaches.
