One body recovered, another missing on Kern River

Saturday proved to be one of the most challenging days for Kern County Sheriff’s Department Search and Rescue with the discovery of one body on the Kern River, and an ongoing search for another man pulled under the water.

Officials said they recovered a body of a man at 9:58 a.m. near the Sandy Flat Campground near Lake Isabella. In a news release, the Sheriff’s Department said the body may be of a man who went missing near the campground on July 4.

Later in the day at Sandy Flat, rescuers saved a man who was stuck on a rock but they reached the stranded man by boat he said his 27-year-old nephew had been pulled under the swift water of the Kern River. Rescuers began an intensive ground and air search for the man Saturday afternoon, but the search was eventually called off for the night. Officials said the search will resume Sunday morning.

At 12:49 p.m., search and rescue teams responded to a Tulare County call for help to help a man stranded near Limestone Canyon. That man was rescued by Kern County Fire Department’s helicopter but was unharmed.
