BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Officials have identified a motorcyclist found dead in northeastern Montana as a North Dakota man who went missing in June.

The Roosevelt County Coroner’s Office says Zackary Baldwin, of Williston, died of blunt force trauma resulting from a motor vehicle crash. The 30-year-old man was found dead Friday and is believed to have died on June 26, the day he went missing.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2byL86r) that a road cleanup crew had spotted the man’s motorcycle in a ditch off Highway 2. Authorities responded and discovered Baldwin’s body nearby.

The Montana Highway Patrol says Baldwin had veered off the side of the road and rolled at least once down an embankment.

He had been wearing a helmet but it came off at some point.



The incident remains under investigation.
