Trinity County officials say a body found at a Douglas City camp ground Thursday afternoon is missing 81-year-old Chester Stygar.

According to the Trinity County Sheriff's Office, Stygar was found around 1:45 p.m. Thursday in the river at the BLM Campground on Steiner Flat Road in Douglas City.

Stygar had been missing since about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when he walked away from his Douglas home. An autopsy has been scheduled for next week to determine the cause of death.

Stygar is one of two Trinity County men reported missing this week. Search and rescue operations are ongoing for 59-year-old Dave Stornetta, who officials say went missing in a remote area of Trinity County east of Covelo.
