Sad Update....Missing Teen Jake Wiebe Found Deceased

Jamestown, CA....From the Tuolumne Sheriff's Dept...."Update Sunday, August 25th, We have a sad update regarding a missing man reported earlier this week. The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue (SAR) team found the body of a man matching the description of Jake Wiebe near the base of a cliff on Chicken Ranch Road. The Wiebe family has been notified and an autopsy will be conducted to determine cause of death. Foul play is not suspected. We share our heartfelt condolences to the Wiebe family for their loss.

Update Saturday, August 24th-
Video surveillance gathered from the Chicken Ranch Casino shows Jake climbing the hillside of Table Mountain on Wednesday shortly after he left his home. Items possibly belonging to Jake were found this morning on top of Table Mountain. We know the community wants to help in the search but the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team are in the area. They are asking the public to please stay out of the area so as not to hinder their systematic and thorough search.

Original Post-
We need your help in finding a missing teen. 18-year-old Jake Aaron Wiebe was reported missing by his family on Wednesday night.

Jake reportedly walked away from his home on Margaret Drive in Jamestown shortly after getting involved in a verbal argument on the phone with his mother. Jake’s family says he likes to visit New Melones Lake, Don Pedro Lake, Shawmut Road in Chinese Camp, and downtown Sonora. They said it’s also a possibility that Jake hitchhiked or got a ride to another county. Earlier that morning, Jake was also heard talking about hiking the Table Mountain area.

Jake’s family and Sheriff’s Deputies searched the areas where he is known to hang out. Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue(SAR) members flew a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) in the area of Jeanesse and Table Mountain but did not find him.

Jake is described as 5’9”, 145 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a green shirt and blue jeans.

If you see Jake or know of his whereabouts please call our office at 209-533-5815."
