On Friday, April 24, 2020, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office was called regarding a possible drowning at the north fork of the Cosumnes River. It was reported that 16 year old Brian Trevisan-Maxey was missing. Brian, and a group of friends, had been walking along rocks in the river with Brian at the rear of the group. At one point, the group noticed Brian was no longer behind them. After searching the area, the group called 911.
EDSO responded, including Search and Rescue and the EDSO Dive Team, to search the area and the water. The search continued through Tuesday, April 28th, when a body was discovered in the water. Recovery attempts have been made and are so far unsuccessful, as the area has extremely fast moving water and a depth of approximately 25 feet.
Although positive identification has not been completed, it is believed to be Brian. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brian’s family during this extremely difficult time. Brian’s family has asked for privacy during this time and no further contact with media outlets.
