Body of missing Roseville man found

The body of a Roseville man missing for more than a week has been found in unincorporated Placer County.

Brent Bell, 49, left his home near Woodcreek Golf Club Oct. 16, riding his white Trek cruiser-style bicycle. He reportedly has been depressed about personal issues and may have taken a handgun with him, according to a Roseville police department new release.

Bell's family was concerned that he may have ridden his bicycle to a remote area and harmed himself, police said.

Roseville police officers checked bike trails and open space areas with the assistance of a California Highway Patrol helicopter but were unable to locate Bell. Volunteers also searched for him.

His body was found Tuesday afternoon near Industrial Avenue. No foul play is suspected.
