The body of a 59-year-old man pulled from the American River near Sacramento State Tuesday was identified later that afternoon.
Mark Lauchli was last seen Feb. 12 at his home on McQuillan Circle. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department says Lauchli was reportedly distraught and left a note that he was going to the river.
His family filed a missing person report after finding his car near La Riviera Drive and Howe Avenue.
Until Tuesday, searches of the area came up empty.
Lauchli was finally found just after 7 a.m. Tuesday in the American River near College Town Drive. The Coroner’s office says nothing about Lauchli’s death appears to be suspicious, but the investigation is ongoing.
