The search for a missing Redding man has ended tragically. On Friday morning at about 10:15AM, Redding Police Department Investigators were conducting a search for Steven Casas in the area of the A.C.I.D. Canal and Cypress Street. Investigators located a body in the canal, about 200 yards south of Cypress Street. Brambles and steep, slippery, banks made retrieval dangerous. Redding Fire and the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department responded. Divers from the sheriff’s department dive team entered the water, and with the assistance from firefighters, the body was retrieved. The body was confirmed to be that of Casas. His family was on scene and are aware of his recovery. No obvious signs of trauma were found, but an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. Investigators report they received a lot of cooperation from businesses in that area.
