Body found above Orangeville


Shortly after 10 a.m., searchers located a body in the foothills above Orangeville. A Utah Highway Patrol helicopter was dispatched to lift the body out of the remote, rugged area.

An Emery County man went missing in that area in December. Emery County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Team conducted searches at that time, both by air and land, but were hampered by winter snowfall. Other organized searches have been conducted recently with negative results. This morning's search was organized by a lieutenant from the Emery County Sheriff's Office. The search group consisted of individuals from the missing man's church. During the search, the lieutenant located a body.

The body has been transported to the State Medical Examiner's Office for positive identification and to determine cause of death.
