Missing Teen Found Dead After Missing for Two Days

The story of Trinity Backus has come to a sad conclusion.

The 16-year-old California girl was last seen on Wednesday.

Authorities found her dead on Friday.

Tragedy Strikes

Around 2:00 p.m. on Friday, authorities found the body of Backus.

Shockingly, the body was found not far from where she had last been seen.

The Nevada County Sheriff's Office stated that the body was found in a "very heavily wooded river drainage area."

The office added that "nothing suspicious" was apparent regarding her death.

The Nevada County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook, "We have been in communication with the family and extend our deepest condolences to them as they work through this loss.

"We ask that you please respect their privacy."

The girl had left her aunt's house around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday and was not seen alive again.

She reportedly left the home wearing her pajamas, robe, and no shoes.

Her aunt, Ashley Bjorklund, stated, "We're lost, sad, heartbroken … worried out of our minds."

She was at her aunt's for a sleepover, but it remains to be seen why she walked out of the house.
