Amador County – Amador County and regional authorities on Monday began a second day of searching for a San Francisco man who went missing after he was last seen swimming Sunday afternoon in North Shore Lake Camanche.

Amador County Undersheriff Jim Wegner released details of the missing person investigation, saying that at about 12:43 p.m. on Sunday, June 10, the Amador County Sheriff’s Department was notified of a possible missing person at North Shore Lake Camanche.

It was reported that at about 11:30 a.m., Remigio Munoz Junior, 31, of San Francisco was swimming in the area of Day Use Point. He was last seen swimming past the point and out of view of his friends and family. Upon realizing that Munoz had not returned, his friends and family, checked the area but did not see Munoz in the water. At that time they reported Munoz as missing.

Amador County Sheriff’s Deputies, East Bay Municipal Utilities District Rangers and a California Department of Fish and Game Warden conducted an extensive search of the grounds for Munoz, whose personal property including his cellular telephone, keys and wallet were still at his campsite, Wegner said.

An Amador County Sheriff’s Marine Unit, a Calaveras County Sheriff’s Marine Unit and a Sacramento Police Department Helicopter conducted a search of the waterway around Day Use Point. The Amador County Sheriff’s Dive Team responded to the scene and conducted an underwater search.
