The body of a 61-year-old fisherman from Sacramento was found at 6:45 a.m. Monday.
Rescuers from the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Boating Safety Unit and other agencies pulled Michael William McBee's body from the water along North Thornton Road near Barber Road, according to a sheriff's report.
McBee was last seen fishing on a dock near a bridge at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday and reported missing at 1 a.m. Monday, according to the report. When friends checked on him, McBee's dog was on the dock and his fishing line was in the water, but McBee was nowhere to be found, according to the report.
The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, Sacramento Fire Department Water Rescue Unit, the U.S. Coast Guard and a REACH helicopter responded along with San Joaquin County Sheriff's deputies.
The cause of death is pending an autopsy and toxicology results.
