NEVADA CITY, Calif. – Authorities say a missing man has been found dead in Grass Valley – with his dog still waiting near him.
From the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office: Unfortunately the search for John Stewart yesterday had a sad outcome. Here is a quick recap.
On 7/06/2021 at approx. 2:30pm, following a roughly 14 hour of search, volunteers from Nevada County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue, and neighboring Counties, located John Stewart deceased in a pond on a neighboring property off Retrac Way in Grass Valley. Located not far from Stewart’s body, waiting at the edge of the pond, was his loyal dog Rico. It was reported that Stewart had been suffering from multiple medical issues and most recently had been experiencing memory loss issues.
At this time, there are no outward signs of foul play, however, a full Coroner’s investigation and an autopsy will be completed to determine the exact cause of Stewart’s death. Our condolences go out to Stewart’s family and friends during this difficult time.
