There is new information tonight on a missing Chico man. The CHP has located the Ford pick-up of 64-year old Douglas Jeffries at the bottom of a high cliff in a rugged area of Eastern Tehama County.

The vehicle was actually found December 1, 2014, however, the weather, as well as the need for special equipment hampered the ability to access the vehicle.

The body of an adult male was found inside, but positive identification has not been made.

Jefferies was last seen November 20th.

Chico Police Investigators were able to use Jeffries' cellular phone provider to help locate him, by getting pings from his phone on a tower in Eastern Tehama County.

The Tehama County Sheriff's Office is now handling the investigation and the coroner's office is expected to release positive identification on the body found sometime this week.
