Body Of Missing Tracy Teen Recovered From Alameda Creek Thursday

SHARE

The body of a young woman discovered on the banks of a rain-swollen Fremont creek Thursday night has been identified as Jayda Jenkins – the 18-year-old Tracy woman whose car plunged into the creek during a rainstorm last month.

Jenkins’ body was found by a man walking his dogs in the Ardenwood area of Fremont, police said. The Alameda County Coroner’s Office confirmed her identity Friday morning.

Jenkins apparently lost control of her car after a collision with another vehicle on Niles Canyon Road January 21. Witnesses said her car went into the water during a heavy rain. It was found, overturned, three days later.

  1. May her parents and family take some comfort in the fact that she was found and brought home again.

  2. Such a tragedy.
    My heart goes out to the parents and prayers for the young gal.
    I’m sorry to bring this up and let it please be a reminder for all of us to drive safely, especially on these winding back roads, that are now commuter thoroughfares with frequent speeding. I think the initial report said she crossed over the line and hit another car before going into the flooded Creek. Such a shame.
