One day after 16-year-old Trinity Backus was reported missing in Northern California, the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office reported that she was tragically found dead not far from where she was last seen Wednesday night. .

In a Facebook post, the sheriff’s office said search and rescue teams located the body of the missing teen shortly after 2 p.m. Friday.

She was found about a half mile north of her aunt’s residence, which was in a “heavily wooded river drainage area,” the sheriff’s office said.

NCSO said there is “nothing suspicious” about his death at this time.

The sheriff’s office also expressed “deep appreciation” for the hundreds of volunteers from agencies across Northern California who participated in the search.
