Jeffrey Paul Morton left his Yorba Linda home around 2:30 a.m. Friday for a hike, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

According to the investigators, he normally arrived home around 6 a.m. Morton’s car, a white 2004 Acura MDX, was discovered at the intersection of Brea Hills Drive and Carbon Canyon Road, directly across the street from the park, as per the Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities claimed on Friday that he didn’t have a cell phone and that his trekking path was unclear.

The Sheriff’s Department claimed at the time that Jeffrey “had never failed to return home from a trek.” “Jefferey is being regarded as a critical missing person due to the circumstances,” it says.

On Friday afternoon, the Brea Fire Department responded to a complaint regarding Morton and started a rescue operation.

The area’s hills were scoured by crews, but aerial coverage was limited by poor visibility, making attempts challenging.

The Sheriff’s Department also requested public assistance and anyone with information to contact at (714) 647-7000.

Unfortunately, Jeffrey was found dead by search and rescue teams early Saturday evening. Police were investigating the circumstances surrounding his death.
