Tulare County Sheriff's Deputies have found the body of a missing man in the upper Kern River. Derrick Rush. 28, from Arroyo Grande disappeared near a campsite just south of Corral Creek July 8.

Authorities say he was tubing with friends. At that time, rescue workers could not find him. But Saturday campers in that area told the Sheriff's Department a body was floating in the river.

Deputies responded and recovered Rush's body. Authorities believe he drowned.
