The report of a body just off an equestrian section of the Pacific Crest Trail drew personnel from the Forest Service, California Highway Patrol and Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, as well as paramedics from Plumas District Hospital on Thursday, July 28. The victim, Robert Lloyd Stuart, 52, of Belden, rested about 150 feet from Highway 70 on a steep slope. Emergency vehicles were parked in a small pullout about one-half mile west of Belden. Personnel hiked up the hill and eventually brought Stuart down to a waiting ambulance. According to Plumas County Sheriff Sergeant Steve Peay, Stuart likely fell while hiking either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Peay said no foul play was suspected.
