The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that the body of missing Sacramento man Kyler Jackson was found in a slough near Walnut Grove.

As was reported by the Herald on Thursday, May 26, Jackson and his one-year-old daughter Kaylee were last seen in Antioch last Sunday, May 22 at 11:00 p.m. The baby’s mother, Jayonna Mason and Kyler’s mother both contacted police on Monday after attempts to reach Jackson by cell phone were unsuccessful. They believed the behavior was out of character for him.

A security camera in Walnut Grove on the river road picked up what was believed to be a video of Jackson’s car, a 2002, 4-door, silver Ford Taurus (CA license # 4WVW944), Sunday night.

Jackson has a past address listed in the 3500 block of San Jose Way in Sacramento.  The Sacramento Police Department had made several attempts to locate Mr. Jackson at his residence with no avail.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Spokesman Sergeant Tony Turnbull, provided the following information in a press release, this morning:

At approximately 5:45 p.m. on May 28, 2016, the Sheriff’s Communication Center received a call regarding a body located in the water in the Georgiana Slough in South Sacramento County.

Sheriff’s Deputies and the Walnut Grove Fire Department responded to the scene.  The victim was recovered from the water.  The Sacramento County Coroner responded and positively identified the victim as 23-year-old Kyler Jackson.

Members of the Sheriff’s Department Marine Enforcement Detail were called out to continue searching the waterways in the area in search of the missing vehicle and his daughter, Kaylee Jackson who was still missing.  The Marine Enforcement Detail located an anomaly in the area of Andrus Island Road and the Walnut Grove Bridge using sonar equipment.  The Drowning Accident Rescue Team (DART) was called out in attempts to identify the anomaly.  The search was suspended at approximately 10:30 p.m., because of dangerous conditions.

The Sheriff’s Marine Enforcement Detail resumed their search this morning. DART will be utilized again, if deputies are able to identify a potential target under water with their sonar equipment.

We will continue to provide updates to this story as additional reports are received and details are confirmed.
