The body of Brett Olson, 20, of Lafayette, was found today by a fisherman in the Sacramento River approximately two miles downriver from where Olson was last seen.
Olson went missing last Sunday during a tubing trip with some of his friends near Chico State University. Olson’s family, friends and many volunteers have been assisting police and search and rescue teams to locate Olson all week.
Olson’s parents were near the river and identified their son’s body shortly after he was found.
Olson was a student at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo and a graduate of Acalanes High School.
Acalanes High School will be hosting a vigil at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday night to remember Brett Olson.
