Officials Find Body of Man Swept Away in Walnut Creek Canal

CONCORD (BCN) -- The Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office found the body of  79-year-old James Hogan Wednesday evening in the creek east of Buchanan Field  Airport in Concord, sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said Thursday.

Hogan was in a car in the city of Walnut Creek on Sunday evening  with his wife Janet Hogan, 75, and their son Tim Hogan, 40, when their 2000  Honda Accord crashed near Mount Diablo Boulevard and San Miguel Drive and  plunged into the rain-swollen creek, police said.

Tim Hogan, a San Diego resident, was trapped inside the car and  died at the scene, police said.

Janet and James Hogan, both Walnut Creek residents, were able to  escape, but were quickly swept away in the current.

A California Highway Patrol helicopter was able to lower a rescue  swimmer from the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District into the water  and pull Janet Hogan to safety.

James Hogan, however, disappeared after being seen floating face  down in the water near Bancroft Road.

The sheriff's office conducted an extensive search Monday with  more than 50 members of its search-and-rescue team, K-9 units, helicopters  and boats. Crews scoured the 11.3-mile length of Walnut Creek between  Bancroft Road and the Sacramento San Joaquin-Delta, but found no sign of  James Hogan's body.

The ground search was called off Monday evening. On Tuesday, the  sheriff's office searched the area again by helicopter, but again found no  sign of Hogan.

During a helicopter search Wednesday, two members of the sheriff's  office dive team aboard the helicopter spotted Hogan's body shortly after 6  p.m. An autopsy today confirmed that he drowned.

James Hogan had volunteered with the sheriff's department for  almost 16 years at the Alamo station, where he coordinated other volunteers,  Lee said.
