PLACER COUNTY, Calif. (KTXL) — Northern California law enforcement officials found Dante de la Torre, a 16-year-old that went missing Wednesday afternoon, dead on Thursday, according to the Placer County Sheriff.

Placer County Sheriff’s Office said that de la Torre was found dead “in a remote wooded area near the Gold Run Rest Stop” and that foul play is not suspected.

Officials say de la Torre went to the Gold Run rest stop, about 12 miles east of Colfax, around 12:30 p.m. for a school project and did not return. Since then, he had not contacted either his family or his friends.

Placer County Sheriff’s officials told FOX40 News that de la Torre’s car was found at the rest stop and that he attends Colfax High School.

Officials from the Placer County Sheriff and the Nevada County Sheriff were involved in the search for the teen and asked that the public not search on their own, as it could impede the search.

Placer County Sheriff’s officials say that more than three dozen searchers and K9s are looking for Dante, and that the dogs may lose his scent if other people are in the area.

He was wearing a tan jacket, blue sweatshirt, tan pants and brown hiking boots when he was last seen.
