(Reuters) - The search for a prominent automotive journalist missing since last week in northern California’s gold country has focused on a river where his motorcycle, clothing and other belongings turned up, but no foul play is suspected, authorities said on Thursday.

David Gordon Johnson, 43, disappeared while on his way home to the Sacramento area from a long-distance motorcycle ride that friends said was meant as a test drive for a magazine article he planned to write.

Johnon was reported missing by his fiancee, and a search began on June 7, according to the statement.
