INYO COUNTY, Calif. - A Camp Pendleton Marine has been presumed dead after having not been found in the Sierra Nevada Mountains after a week-long search.
The 24-year-old first Lieutenant, Matthew Kraft from Connecticut, set out on a 10 day, 195-mile trek in late February.
The week-long search was started after Kraft failed to show on his planned return date.
Authorities are saying that Kraft was probably overcome by severe weather during winter storms.
