If you're still eating breakfast right now, do yourself a favor and stop. A running shoe with a severed human foot inside washed up on Ocean Beach Sunday morning, and police are now trying to figure out who the foot -- and the shoe -- belong to.

CBS News says the National Park Service beach patrol stumbled upon the foot which was inside a green-and-black Puma sneaker, size 11.5.

Police found no sign of the rest of the body, and they have no idea whose foot it is. What's more, they don't know yet what happened to the person, but say whatever it was, it wasn't a recent event.

Investigators from the Medical Examiner's Office told the news station that the foot and some "associated tissue" in the shoe had probably been "rolling around the seabed for a while."

There was no more information about the foot at this time.
