16-year-old Colfax High School student Dante de la Torre found dead, officials say

A 16-year-old student at Colfax High School who disappeared Wednesday while working on a school project was found dead just over 24 hours later, the Placer County Sheriff's Office said on Thursday. Foul play is not considered a factor in Dante de la Torre's death, the sheriff's office said. De la Torre was reported missing after visiting the Gold Run rest stop off Interstate 80 to gather soil samples, but he did not return, the sheriff's office said.
