A local fisherman had located a body nearby, and once officials got involved, they determined that it was the body of Wilkinson, who had been reported missing several weeks prior.
In early February, Yuba City Police said that a family member of Wilkinson reported her missing after she did not show up to work for several days.
According to the family member, Wilkinson was last seen in Marysville on January 29 around 3:40 p.m.
The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office said that it, as well as the Yuba City Police Department, are investigating the death of Wilkinson.
