Body of Missing Man Located
The family of a man missing since April 6 told us today that Paul Martin’s body had been located near the mouth of the Klamath River. Martin, who was 22 years old, was one of three friends who went swimming in the Trinity River. The three were swept away by the swift current. Two were rescued but Martin was not found until earlier this week.
The family asks that the community share “the dangers of swimming in California Rivers out of season.” A GoFundMe account which was originally set up to help with expenditures for the search is now being used to assist Martin’s mother with the expense of burying her son.
Martin’s brother-in-law, Eric Fisher says, “Thank you to all that have been supportive during this time, it has been wholeheartedly appreciated.”
