ESCALANTE, Utah, Dec. 8, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Garfield County Search and Rescue crews found a body in the Egypt Road area of Escalante.

A Facebook post from Garfield County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday night said Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue dog teams assisted in locating the deceased person.

The body has been transported to the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner for identification and to determine a cause of death.

It’s not clear if the deceased person is male or female, or how long the body had been in that location.

“No other information available at this time,” the post said. “Sheriff Perkins would like to thank the Rocky Mountain Rescue Teams and Garfield County Search and Rescue for all their hard work.”

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
