Missing man found dead at Hood Mountain park



On Nov. 7, a county search and rescue team combing the southern border of Hood Mountain Regional Park located the body of Jon Clifford, a hiker who had been missing since Nov. 2.

Clifford, 71, from Santa Rosa, was found in a creekbed. Cause of death has yet to be determined.

Friends had reported Clifford missing, and deputies found his vehicle on Nov. 5 in the Los Alamos Road parking area near an access to the park.

Search and rescue efforts included 87 people from 14 agencies, plus a helicopter, tracking dogs, and an off-road motorcycle team.
