A body found Saturday amid an ongoing search for a person who was swept away during a swift water rescue in Thousand Oaks has been identified, according to the Ventura County Medical Examiner.

The body of Josue Trinidad, 18, was found around 8:45 a.m. though officials could not confirm that the body was that of the person authorities were searching for.

The incident was reported about 2:25 p.m. Friday in the 1200 block of Camino Dos Rios during a torrential winter storm.

Three men were rescued when heavy rains flooded a barranca area, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.

The victims had been stranded on higher ground, but the fourth person, described as a man, was swept away by strong currents before authorities arrived.

The search resumed Saturday morning and the body was discovered. Authorities released no other details about the body or its condition.
