Missing 84-year-old man found dead in remote Fresno County cabin after weeklong search


An 84-year-old man who went missing last week has been found dead, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday.

Augusto Zarate had been vacationing at a cabin near Huntington Lake, the Fresno Bee reported.

The man’s body was found Saturday by ground search teams in a remote, wooded area east of the lake. The body was located about a mile (1.6 kilometers) away from his cabin, the newspaper reported.

The cause of death has yet to be determined. There was no visible trauma to his body when discovered, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said.
