Investigators believe a body found Thursday near Ione is that of Robert Piccetti, an elderly Stockton man that has been missing since late November.

Detectives have yet to confirm the identity of the body, and the cause of death will be revealed in a coroner’s investigation.

San Joaquin County Sheriff’s deputies say Piccetti went missing shortly after Thanksgiving. He had gone mushroom hunting with Otilio Garcia, who has since been named a person of interest in the case.

Investigators say Garcia was less than cooperative when he was questioned. Garcia reportedly drove Piccetti’s truck back to Stockton, without Piccetti.

Deputies will continue to investigate Piccetti’s disappearance.
