Missing Redwood City Man Found Dead in Aptos Forest

George Sliter's body was found about 48 hours after he disappeared.

The remains of a Redwood City retiree who went missing Sunday morning in the Aptos hills were found Tuesday around 10 a.m., the Sheriff's Office reported.

George Sliter, 74, was last seen around 8:30 a.m. Sunday at the Monte Toyon Retreat Center, where he was staying with friends.

Sliter's body was found Tuesday face down in a ravine near the 600 block of Hudson Lane off of Porter Gulch Road, Sheriff's Deputy April Skalland said. He was found at 10:30 a.m. by volunteers from the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Search and Rescue team. 

A straight shot from Monte Toyon Retreat Center to the location of Sliter's body is around two miles, but as one deputy said, there's no way to know how far he actually traveled to get to that place, as he surely zig-zagged his way there. 

According to Skalland, the coroner's office will determine how long Sliter's body had been in the ravine in the coming days. The sheriff's office does not suspect foul play in this incident. 

The search for Sliter entered its third day Tuesday morning. At its peak, more than 100 Search and Rescue volunteers from five counties were looking for him on foot, on horseback, on ATVs and dirt bikes, and with police tracking dogs.

The area where Sliter went missing is adjacent to The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park, a rugged 10,000-acre wilderness.
