The search for 19-year-old Alfonso Bajo Tellez in the Kern River came to an end today.
Kern County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue crews found his body Tuesday.
The Sheriff's Office said Tellez and his friends were jumping into choppy water when he started yelling for help.
They helped him get to a rock, but then they said he was swept away.
The Sheriff's Office said this is an example of how dangerous the river can be and they are urging everyone to be smart and safe when around the river.
An autopsy on Tellez is scheduled for later this week to determine the exact cause of death.
