Emery County authorities and a volunteer search team on Saturday may have located the body of 25-year-old Matthew Alan Larsen, who has been missing since December.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death and to make a positive identification. Sheriff Greg Funk, however, told The Salt Lake Tribune the body is believed to be that of Larsen.
The body was found in the rugged foothills above Orangeville about 10 a.m., the Emery County Sheriff's Office said in a new release. A Utah Highway Patrol helicopter later lifted it out of the area for transport to the state medical examiner's office.
