“Rancho Cordova Police Department Detectives and Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Detectives have discovered the body of an adult female they believe to be that of Emma Roark who was reported missing last Thursday. The body was found in a secluded rural area at the river access on El Manto.
Emma Roark (20) of Rancho Cordova was last seen leaving her residence at approximately 12 p.m. on Thursday January 27, 2022. Her family became concerned and called Rancho Cordova Police Department to report her missing later in the day at approximately 6 p.m.
An extensive effort over the last four days was initiated in the search for Roark which included the Rancho Cordova Police Department, the Sheriff’s Office, Park Rangers, Search & Rescue personnel and dogs, air support and drones. Sadly, search crews located the body earlier today and determined she was the victim of a homicide. The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office will take custody of the remains and perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death. No suspect nor any further information is available at this time.
