OTAY MESA, Calif. (CNS) – Searchers combing remote, rugged terrain near Otay Mountain Wednesday came across the body of a man matching the description of a dirt-biker missing since the weekend, Sheriff’s officials said.

Deputies confirmed the body, that matches the description of 48-year-old Roberto Camou, was found around 1 p.m. in a remote area off Alta Road. The county Medical Examiner’s Office was called in to take custody of the remains for identification and autopsy purposes.

Camou failed to return Saturday from a ride he took just north of the U.S.-Mexico border. He took a photo of himself and his motorcycle in a hilly, open area and posted it online before going missing.

Deputies and search-and-rescue volunteers searched for him for days, assisted by personnel with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, the U.S. Border Patrol, the state Department of Parks and Recreation, and the California Office of Emergency Services.
