The body of Blake Cochran, who was reported missing Sunday, was located Tuesday about a quarter of a mile from the Laurel Creek staging area parking lot in a remote area off of the marked walking path.
An investigation into where Cochran was last seen led Pleasanton police to the discovery of Cochran’s vehicle at thestaging area. Searches for Blake began immediately, including three separate searches of the Laurel Creek recreational area and the connecting foothills.
After a third search, police found Blake, who was deceased, in a remote area off of the marked walking path.
Based on an initial investigation, there was no evidence located that would indicate foul play.
The Pleasanton Police Department has been in contact with Cochran’s family and the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Coroner’s Bureau throughout the investigation.
Any questions regarding this case should be directed to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Coroner’s Bureau.
