YUBA COUNTY, Calif. - A person who was reported missing Sunday afternoon was found in a vehicle that was overturned in a water-filled canal Sunday night, according to California Highway Patrol Yuba-Sutter Unit.

On Sunday, California Highway Patrol was notified of an overturned sedan in a water-filled canal near McGowan Parkway at Rancho Rd.

CHP and Yuba County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area and found a vehicle submerged and were not able to access the vehicle.

The Yuba County Dive Team responded to the area but before the dive team arrived, the fire department located a woman, 25-year-old Maricello Soto-Ortiz, dead in the driver’s seat.

CHP said the license plate was listed as a missing person that was filed on Sunday when Soto-Ortiz never arrived home from Roseville Sunday morning.

CHP added that alcohol is considered a factor in the crash.
