Authorities: Body of missing transient found in Mayer area
MAYER, Ariz. (AP) — Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say a 64-year-old man reported missing from the Mayer area by his family last week has been found dead.
They say the man was a transient and his name wasn’t immediately released Wednesday.
Authorities say the man was last seen on April 4 and his vehicle has been located earlier outside of Mayer.
Sheriff’s deputies and volunteers from the Yavapai County search and rescue team located the body around 6:30 p.m. Monday in a remote section of the Grape Vine wash.
It was taken to the county medical examiner for an autopsy.
Authorities say there was no indication of foul play.
