The Alameda County coroner's bureau yesterday identified a 39-year-old Antioch man whose body was found near a creek in the Sunol Regional Wilderness in unincorporated Alameda County Saturday afternoon.
A hiker found Anthony Wallace, believed by the coroner's bureau to be a transient, at about 4 p.m. near the Alameda Creek just downstream from the Little Yosemite gorge in the park, according to East Bay Regional Park District police.
Park district police, fire and ranger units responded and found Wallace laying near the creek's shoreline. There was no obvious signs of trauma or foul play at the scene, according to police.
An autopsy will be performed today to look into the cause of death, according to the coroner's bureau.
The area where the body was found is a popular hiking destination within the park, according to park district police.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Ken Wong at (510) 881-1833.
