YREKA, Calif -- Early Sunday afternoon, the Yreka Police Department informed the public that two Yreka brothers missing since Monday have been found dead.

According to police, the two brothers were found deceased 200 feet down a mountainside near Pioneer Bridge along Route 263. The occupants of that vehicle were identified as the two missing bothers.

On February 20, 2021, at 12:56 AM, YPD requested the assistance of the California Highway Patrol to search for the two missing Yreka residents.

Shortly later, YPD was able to identify a possible location from the missing person's cellular phone records. Yreka CHP officers responded to State Route 263 and Pioneer Bridge and searched the area on foot.

According to police, a little while later, the missing vehicle and both occupants were located approximately 200 feet down the mountainside.

Because of the steep and rough terrain, the CHP Northern Division Air Operations Unit had to be called in to assist with the recovery of both brothers from the mountainside.

Yreka CHP is handling the crash investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed the traffic collision are is being asked to call the Yreka CHP and speak with Officer S. Gordon regarding the incident.
