Body seen in Northern CA creek, man reported missing shortly after

Happy Camp, Calif. — Siskiyou County Sheriff’s deputies spent all day Saturday looking for a body, reportedly seen in a creek near Happy Camp.

The sighting was first reported Friday night in Indian Creek, and then again near the Klamath River access point.

Search and Rescue crews have been searching by boat and air, but have yet to find the body. Authorities say muddy, fast flowing water is making the search difficult.

Around the same time, family of Benjamin Camarena reported him missing, after the horse he was riding in the same area returned without him.

Police say it’s not yet clear if the two cases are linked. Deputies are investigating both reports.

NBC5 News will continue to follow this developing story.
