Earthly body located; Mark Albee, 58 - Middleton, CALIFORNIA

The body of 58-year-old Mark Albee was discovered at around 9 a.m., according to Sheriff Brian Martin.

Albee's family had reported him missing early Saturday afternoon. He'd last been seen at around 8:30 a.m. Saturday, according to his daughter, Michelle Smith.

Albee's Ford Ranger pickup later was found near a creek in a dirt turnout at the bottom of the Coyote Grade near Middletown, Martin said.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office and Lake County Search and Rescue began a search early Saturday evening, continuing until into the night. Martin said a helicopter also had been brought from Napa County to assist.

At 7 a.m. Sunday the search had resumed, Martin said.

Martin said Albee's body was found about 500 yards from where his pickup had been located the previous day.

"The body was recovered by one of the Search and Rescue dogs," he said.

There are no signs of foul play, Martin said.
