FILLMORE, Utah — Authorities have found the body of a man missing since last week in west central Utah.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported on its Web site Friday that the Millard County Sheriff's Office said deputies found the body of 31-year-old LeRoy Buckley on Thursday. Buckley is from Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.
Authorities have said he and 44-year-old Kurt Gregory, of Twin Falls, Idaho, hiked to Notch Peak to BASE jump on Sept. 9. Gregory lost sight of Buckley along a ledge near the base of the peak.
Gregory searched but couldn't find Buckley and called police using an emergency beacon when he ran out of water.
Efforts were under way Friday to recover Buckley's body.
BASE jumpers use a quick-release parachute to jump from mountains, cliffs and buildings.
