COARSEGOLD -  On Wednesday last week, the Madera County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report of a missing teenager. Deputies searched several areas where the girl was suspected to be, but were unable to locate her.

On Thursday after some of her personal items had been located near a large pond in the Indian Lakes area. Members of the Madera County Sheriff’s Dive Team responded and were able to check a portion of the pond, but had to abandon the search due to darkness. Sheriff’s Deputies and Sheriff’s Search and Rescue volunteers were also called out to search the surrounding area near the water.


On Friday, Sheriff’s Deputies went back to the pond and conducted an aerial search using a Remotely Piloted Vehicle. During this operation, a vehicle was observed under water in a previously unsearched area of the pond. Sheriff’s divers responded to the scene and recovered the vehicle. Sadly, they also located the body of the missing girl in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. The vehicle was confirmed to belong to the missing girl and she was the sole occupant. At this point, there are no indications that any other people were involved in the death.

The deceased girl has been identified as 16 year old Jenna Borrayo of Coarsegold.
