SALMON, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say an east-central Idaho snowmobiler has been found dead in a mountainous area northwest of Salmon.

The Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office tells the Post Register (https://bit.ly/2ibFxcp) in a story on Wednesday that deputies and rescue teams found the body of 58-year-old Michael Mogard of Salmon on Saturday.

Officials say they found Mogard’s snowmobile at noon and followed footprints to his body.

Lemhi County Coroner Mike Ernst says a preliminary determination is that Mogard died from exposure. Mogard was reported missing the day before his body was found.

Authorities are continuing to investigate.
