The body of a Washington man, who was reported missing in May, has now been found.
We previously reported that Joshua Guerrier, 28, set off hiking with his dog on May 29th but never returned home.
Later that afternoon Guerrier’s personal belongings, including clothing, a cell phone, and a dog, were found but there was no sight of him. Authorities have speculated that Guerrier removed his clothing and went into the water but was carried away by the fast moving rapids.
A search party looked for signs of Guerrier for day but no one was able to find him until a K9 team stumbled on a clue July 1st.
“The Mason County K9 team successfully detected a trail and located a body partially submerged in water, wedged against debris in the river near mile post 2. Subsequently, the SAR teams recovered the body,” the police department wrote.
No foul play has been suspected and the Kitsap County coroners listed Guerrier’s cause of death as drowning. The agency deemed his death an accident.
A GoFundMe campaign was previously organized by Guerrier's family to help with his recovery. Sadly, his family is now planning his memorial services.
