MONTICELLO, Utah (AP) - The body of a Moab man who vanished on a rafting trip has been pulled from the Colorado River.

San Juan County sheriff’s deputies say the body of 33-year-old Casey Menuey was found by kayakers Saturday in the river at the mouth of Monument Basin.

They say the body was found about seven miles down river from Lathrop Canyon, where he was last seen and reported missing June 6.

Menuey’s rafting party stopped to check out some ruins, and he was gone when it returned.

Investigators say he walked a trail to the riverbank and got into the Colorado.

Deputies say Menuey was not wearing a life preserver, and alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor in the case.
