Authorities at Grand Canyon National Park recovered a body Tuesday in Colorado River believed to be that of a Utah guide.

Joshua Tourjee, 34, of Moab, was reported missing Sept. 12 when he did not return to camp during a river trip in the area, according to a news release from the park.

The National Park Service conducted a multiday search-and-rescue operation — which had been paused by heavy winds and later resumed — and located the body near the Fishtail Rapid area more than a week later.

Based on "evidence found with the body," officials say they likely found Tourjee. The body was transported by helicopter to the Coconino County, Ariz., medical examiner's office, which will attempt to identify it.
