Joseph Echavarria was riding with some friends in rural San Luis Obispo County near Pozo Sunday afternoon when he disappeared. San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies and the CHP started a search.

Echavarria’s body was discovered. Officials say it appears the 57 year old Goleta man died from natural causes, but an autopsy is pending.
