The state Medical Examiner’s Office has positively identified a body found in Emery County as that of a man who had been missing since December.
The Emery County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that 25-year-old Matthew Alan Larsen was identified after his body was discovered in the rugged foothills above Orangeville on Saturday.
Emery County Sheriff Greg Funk said Saturday that there were no signs of foul play.
A January story in the Emery County Progress said Larsen, of Castle Dale, was last seen in the Orangeville area on Dec. 15.
Cellphone records indicated he was somewhere west of Orangeville, the newspaper reported.
