Early Wednesday evening, a woman feeding horses discovered the body of a Goshen man who was last seen six days ago.
The woman called Central Utah 911 shortly after 5 p.m. to report she had found a human body near some corrals on a property along Tunnel Road, south of Elberta, according to a Utah County Sheriff’s Office press release.
Investigators arrived on scene and identified the body as that of Edward Dale Reynolds, 68. Reynolds’ body was taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Taylorsville.
Reynolds was last seen leaving his home after 4 p.m. on May 16. He was seen driving east on U.S. Highway 6, according to previous reports.
Reynolds reportedly suffered from memory loss problems. He reportedly left home without prescriptions needed for several medical conditions.
On Tuesday morning, officials reported that the white 1986 Dodge D-150 pickup he was driving was located in a remote area of southwest Utah County, about eight miles south of Elberta.
Search and rescue, Mounted Posse, aircraft and dogs were deployed to help search for Reynolds.
Reynolds’ body was found about five miles north of where the pickup was located. It was in an area that hadn’t yet been searched.
