Family confirmed to local news outlets that the body found along Bakersfield’s Kern River on Friday afternoon was Shayla Wingle.

Wingle’s body was discovered near the search area where she went missing last week, Kern County Sheriff’s Office officials said.


According to Kern County Search and Rescue the Bakersfield woman was last seen by her husband, Brandon, near Dahlonega Hot Springs off of Old Kern Canyon Road after their truck broke down. Reports after she went missing say that Wingle was last seen at Whisky Flat Days in Kernville, but authorities says it is unclear if she ever made it there. source

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends at this difficult time.
