Jet Skier Finds Body Of Motorcyclist 6 Days After He Plunged Off Antioch Bridge

ANTIOCH (CBS/AP) -- The body of a motorcyclist who fell off the Antioch Bridge six days ago has been found.

Contra Costa Sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said the body of 26-year-old Dylan Rath was spotted by a jet skier Saturday morning about a half-mile southeast of the bridge.

Rath fell over the rail into the San Joaquin River on April 12 after his Harley Davidson collided with a Honda Civic on the bridge.

Volunteer boaters have been looking for Rath after searches led by the Coast Guard and the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department turned up nothing.

The family has set up a donation page to raise money for his 3-month old daughter and pay for his funeral expenses.
