Police have tentatively identified a body found Wednesday afternoon in Clark County as Ryan Mayer, who went missing last month.
Mayer, 27, was last seen March 14 leaving his residence in that county near Northeast 20th Avenue and 150th Street, Clark County officials said.
Family and friends haven’t heard from him since. Mayer was said to have been under the influence of drugs when he disappeared, officials said, though he had been sober for nearly a year.
The body was found in a wooded area in Mt. Vista.
“The family of Ryan wanted to thank the community, family and friends for their support and assistance since Ryan’s disappearance,” Sgt. Kevin Allais said in a news release.
Police are waiting for autopsy results and confirmation of the deceased man’s identity.
