Jeffrey David Bauder, 28, was found by fishermen just south of the China Bend Vineyards in the Columbia River on June 28. Bauder was reported missing after he fell off a jet ski in Trail on May 9. According to information from the Stevens County Coroner’s Office, it was reported that Bauder was not wearing a life jacket and the two other men who were with him were recovered by search and rescue.
