KEYSVILLE, Calif. — Search crews have recovered the body of an 11-year-old girl who apparently drowned at a Central California campground.
The Kern County sheriff’s office says searchers found the body Saturday where it had lodged against a rock underwater in the Kern River.
The girl went missing Friday while swimming at a campground in the Sequoia National Forest in Kern County.
About a dozen people have drowned in the Kern River since spring. Authorities warn that record snows have many California rivers running colder and harder than usual.
