The body of a Temecula man who went missing January 26 from the All Seasons RV Park was found in the park’s lake by Reserve Deputy Divers February 2.
Accoridng to the Sheriff’s Department, Steve Mesa Turrey was last seen walking away from the park on Tuesday, January 26. Turrey had medical and mental health issues requiring prescription medication making him at-risk.
Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Volunteers along with K-9 Handlers, as well as helicopters and drone units from above were mobilized to look for Turrey. Divers also searched a lake in the RV park, but heavy rains kept moving the muddy water resulting in poor visibility.
While the search efforts were scaled back, the Sheriff’s Department continued looking for Turrey at the campsite. On February 2, Search and Rescue K-9 Handlers were alerted to the northwest area of the lake. Divers went in and found a body in the muddy waters.
A representative from the Medical Examiner’s Office was on scene and made a preliminary identification of the body, as well as notification of Turrey’s family. The M.E.’s Office will determine the cause and manner of death.
