Body of 11-year-old girl recovered in Kern River

Kern County Sheriff’s Department search and rescue teams found the body Saturday of an 11-year-old girl who went missing in the Kern River near Keyesville.

Investigators said they found Mya Calderon’s body 7-feet under water, lodged between a rock in the river. Calderon’s body was found about 500 yards from where she was last seen on Sept. 1 with her grandfather. The man was located clinging to a rock and was saved by a swift water rescue team from the Sheriff’s Department.

Darkness ended the department’s search on Friday night, but it began again on Saturday and searchers found the girl’s body after a tip that there was something suspicious in the water. A short time after 9:45 a.m., searchers found the girl.
