Man found dead after search at Pleasanton Ridge Park

Staging area closed during search, foul play not suspected

Foul play is not suspected in the death of a man whose body was found this morning at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.

A search for the man, reported missing Monday night, forced the Foothill staging area to be closed for about four hours, according to a news release from the Pleasanton Police Department.

"Ultimately, late last night, the man's car was located in the parking lot of the Pleasanton Ridge Park, which is East Bay Parks Police Jurisdiction," the report says. "The two agencies worked together to try to locate the missing man."

At around 8:30 a.m. this morning, the body of the man was discovered in the hills at the park. The Alameda County Coroner's office will conduct an investigation to determine the official cause of the man's death.

His name has not been released.
