The Sacramento County coroner’s office has officially identified the body found in the Feather River in Live Oak Sunday afternoon, as 20-year-old Aly Yeoman of Gridley authorities said on Tuesday.
According to the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office, an angler reported finding the body at 12:46 p.m. Sunday, in an area south of the Live Oak Recreational Park boat launch.
The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office boat patrol responded and recovered the body, Sutter County Undersheriff Jeffrey Pierce said. An autopsy performed Tuesday officially identified the body as that of Aly Yeoman.The body was sent to Sacramento County to be autopsied because Sutter County doesn’t have a forensic pathologist. Yeoman, 20, of Gridley, a Yuba College student, has been missing since March 30. She was last seen that night at a residence in Yuba City. A few days later, farmworkers reported finding her vehicle, a 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, stuck in mud in a Live Oak orchard off Pennington Road. They also located her cell phone at the same location. Authorities observed a set of footprints headed away from the vehicle, but found no signs of a struggle or any other clues as to Yeoman’s whereabouts.
"The Sutter County Sheriff's office extends our deepest sympathy to the Aly Yeoman family," the SCSO said in a press release. "We would like to thank the public and media in assisting us in this investigation."
The SCSO is requesting anyone with information regarding the circumstances of the case to call the department at 822-7307 or leave a tip at suttersheriff.org.
