Motta’s body was located Sunday evening by Life Flight but was not able to be recovered due to wind conditions.

Safe Tip

If you hear a noise that sounds like someone breaking in or moving around, quietly call 9-1-1 and wait calmly until the Sheriff's Deputies arrive. If you can leave safely, do so. Otherwise, lock yourself in the room you are in, and pretend to be asleep.
