Body of missing Fortuna hunter Joseph Quen found

October 16, 1011

By Kaci Poor, The Time-Standard

The search for Joseph Quen Sr. took a tragic turn Saturday after his family confirmed that the body of the 66-year-old missing hunter had been found.

Close family friend Becky Davy said she heard from one of the searchers that Quen's body had been found under a blanket with his blue heeler “Lucky” at his side. Davy said the searcher estimated Quen had been dead for three to four days.

Quen was reported missing on Oct. 8 after he didn't return home from a hunting trip in the Yolla Bolly Wilderness, located in southern Trinity County near the Mendocino County border.
