SALT LAKE CITY — Search and rescue crews in Utah have found the body of a 44-year-old Colorado camper who was missing for several weeks, authorities said.
Daggett County Sheriff Erik Bailey said Leonard Corby “Corb” Fisher was found Monday about 2.5 miles from Brown’s Park, his last known location after first being reported missing April 4, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.
Fisher’s Colorado driver license was inside a wallet found with the body, and family was notified once the body was recovered, Bailey said.
“Based on the location and the belongings found at the scene, we believe the body is that of Mr. Fisher,” Bailey said.
Fisher was last seen on March 31 or April 1 camping in Brown’s Park, an isolated mountain valley along the Green River on the border of Utah and Colorado, authorities said.
Initial ground and air searches were conducted April 5, officials said, adding that the search was discontinued due to limited resources and ongoing efforts to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
Daggett County Emergency Management Director Travis Dupaix said crews continued searching Saturday until inclement weather forced them to stop Sunday.
The body was found Monday and sent to the Utah medical examiner’s office to determine cause of death and officially confirm identity.
