Body Of Missing Calaveras County Man Found

The body of a Calaveras County man who went missing last month has been found. 39 year old Julio Gonzales of Jenny Lind left his home on January 9th driving an ATV through extreme weather on his way to work. He did not return that afternoon and Calaveras County Search and Rescue was activated. They found his ATV in the Calaveras River, which runs through their property, but did not find Gonzales and search efforts were hampered by the weather and flooding. Recently, they received a phone call from Gonzales’ family, who reported they thought they found him on the riverbank several hundred yards downstream from where the ATV was found. Search and rescue personnel were sent and found his body in the water near the riverbank. They believe he suffered an accidental drowning when he was swept away by the river.
