BreakingNewsFeather Publishing

The Sierra County Sheriff’s Office reports the remains of a missing Doyle man have been discovered in Eastern Sierra County.

About 6:30 a.m. Tuesday June 25, the Sierra County Sheriff's Office received information about a suspicious vehicle near the Treasure Mountain Loop Road just northwest of the Little Truckee Summit in Eastern Sierra County. Deputies met with the reporting party, a local resident who located the vehicle in the remote area of the Tahoe National Forest while horseback riding. About 9 a.m. deputies arrived at the vehicle and discovered the sole male occupant was deceased.

The vehicle, a maroon 2004 extended cab Ford Ranger belonged to Patrick McCarthy, of Doyle. McCarthy, a Susanville Cal-Trans employee, was reported missing June 3 to the Lassen County Sheriff's Office. Although the occupant of the vehicle has not been positively identified, the remains are believed to be those of Patrick McCarthy.

McCarthy's family members have been notified, and deputies are working to positively identify the remains. Although the cause of death is still under investigation, deputies do not suspect foul play.
