Teams search for missing man at Hell Hole Reservoir

-A +A
The Placer County Sheriff’s Department is searching for a man who was reported missing after capsizing his boat at Hell Hole Reservoir Friday morning. Peter Flores, 50, of San Jose, was last seen at 9 p.m. Thursday when his boat flipped over. Flores’ son and a friend stayed with the boat while Flores apparently swam for the shore. It’s not clear if Flores was wearing a flotation device. Sheriff’s dive team members are searching the frigid waters for any sign of Flores while other search-and-rescue teams search the rugged shoreline. The Flores family was camping at Hell Hole, a remote reservoir operated by the Placer County Water Agency located about 65 miles east of Auburn. - Staff report
