Investigators need help identifying a man who died Wednesday after taking a fall in Provo Canyon.

At 8:07 p.m., Utah County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a man who fell about 200 feet at Bridal Veil Falls. When rescuers arrived they found him at the base of the falls, according to a news release.

He appeared to have died from his injuries, the release adds.

He didn’t have any identification, and in the absence of a missing person report from the area, investigators have not been able to identify him or determine where he lived. His body was taken to the state medical examiner where investigators hope he can be identified.

Anyone with information that might help investigators identify the victim is asked to call the Utah County Sheriff’s Office at 801-794-3970.

The Salt Lake Tribune will update this story as more information is available.
