It was a tragic ending to a missing person’s case involving a Filipina from Northern California.
The Trinity County sheriff’s office has identified a body found in a creek in the area of Big Bar as 30-year-old Ayette Dial.
Dial, who was originally from Olongapo City in the Philippines, was reported missing on June 12. She was last seen leaving the house of her brother, Kevin, in Hayfolk, CA — about an hour away from her body was found.
Authorities found the decomposing body on July 1. Last July 6, the body was identified as Dial.
The sheriff’s office says there was no evidence of a crime at the scene or on the body. The cause of death is pending a toxicology screening.
