Chad Hillhouse, 39, loved the outdoors and frequently visited Asilomar State Beach. But when he went missing on Aug. 13, he left no trace. No one saw or heard from him until this past weekend, when a group of people in the Hollister Hills area found his body.
His mother, Deb Dahlinger, was notified Tuesday, three days after she flew back home to Hawaii without knowing much about her son’s whereabouts. She came to Monterey County with her two other children to search for Hillhouse.
