Search teams believe they’ve recovered body of missing 18-year-old hiker


Fresno Sheriff’s search and rescue team recovered the body of a man from the San Joaquin River on Friday, and they believe he’s the missing 18-year-old hiker they’ve been looking for.

Jared Gardner was swept away last Saturday, and teams have been looking for him since.

The Sheriff’s Office said his identity still needs to be officially confirmed by CSI technicians and the Coroner’s Office.

No other information was immediately available.
