Eric Garcia, who was reported missing December 8th, was recently found deceased inside his vehicle. Garcia’s car was located just off Interstate 80 near Weimar, by the Placer County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue motorcycle team and CHP.

Garcia, 39, of Colfax, was identified by the Placer County Coroner’s Office.

His vehicle had gone off of Interstate 80, near the Weimar exit. His car apparently flipped and ended upside down at the bottom of a steep embankment. Due to the snow and ice conditions early last week locating Garcia’s car was very difficult. CHP is handling the accident investigation.

Search and rescue teams had searched the rural roads of Placer County last week, using 4×4 teams, helicopters and patrol deputies.ย  The motorcycle team, working with the CHP, did a “slow search” along I-80, looking for any signs of an accident. Just before it got dark on the evening ofย December 15th, the team discovered the car at the bottom of a steep hill.
