    A PCSO press release indicated Plumas County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, a CHP helicopter, Indian Valley and Crescent Mills fire departments, the U.S. Forest Service and South Lassen EMS participated in searches on Sunday and Monday. 

   The release added that on Monday a kayaker located a body near the “Shoo-Fly” bridge just south of Indian Falls.”

    Sheriff Greg Hagwood cautioned the public against swimming in the rivers this time of year due to high water levels and cold temperatures. He added that anyone who chose to swim should wear a life jacket.
