Body Found in Yuba River

Yuba River
On Tuesday afternoon, a kayaker found a body in the Yuba River. It was located halfway between Bridgeport and Highway 49.

Immediately after his discovery, the kayaker contacted authorities, and the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office responded. According to Sergeant Sean Scales, deputies, search-and-rescue volunteers, and a California Highway patrol helicopter all took part in the search; they recovered the body around 5 pm. It was then transported to the Eric Rood Administrative Center, and the local mortuary soon after. The identity of the body is still unknown, and Sergeant Scales said, “…the next of kin must be notified before the person’s name is publicly released.”
