The body of a teen who drowned near the Woodson Bridge last week was found Monday by two Tehama County fisherman.

Sheriff's officials said Monday that the fisherman reported the discovery and search crews recovered the juvenile's body around 10 a.m., roughly a mile south of where witnesses said the swimmer began to struggle and went under water last Thursday.

The teen's next of kin was present when the body was recovered, and a positive identification has been made, however because the teen is under 18 his name will not be released.

An autopsy has been scheduled, but investigators say there is no evidence to support a finding other than accidental drowning.
