UPDAET 6/4/16 – It has been determined that the vehicle Kyler was driving made a sharp turn and went down an embankment and struck a tree before sliding into the slough, investigators said. The fact that Kyler was not familiar with the road could have resulted in the accident. An official coroner report on cause of death will be done, and police are also going to go over review video that is on the bridge. Kyler’s father stated that Kyler never missed a custody visit with his daughter and was a good father. RIP Kyler and Kaylee.

Original story: A man and his 2-year-old daughter went missing on their way to Sacramento on Sunday.
Kyler Jackson and his daughter, Kaylee have gone missing while traveling from Antioch to their home in Sacramento. Kyler left Antioch around 11 p.m. on Sunday. The family believes that something may have happened on the way.
“So did something happen along this stretch, along Twin Cities, along I-5,” said Jayonna Mason, Kaylee’s mother.
Kyler has not been on social media and is not answering his phone.
They are both traveling in a silver sedan and would have taken the Antioch bridge to 160 North through Locke to I-5.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Dept. have searched along the river and highway but have found nothing nor have they seen any evidence of a car going into the water.
