PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a dead body has been found in a wash area near Phoenix International Raceway and may be a man missing since last weekend.

Phoenix police say 50-year-old Ramon Arvizo has not been seen since leaving his home early Sunday in his all-terrain vehicle.

About 11:30 a.m. Thursday, a police assisting in the search for Arvizo spotted an ATV on its side southeast of PIR and the body of a man about a quarter-mile away from the vehicle.

Police say the victim was dead at the scene and matched all the characteristics and descriptions of Arvizo.

They say Arvizo may have been involved in some type of collision.

However, police say the cause and manner of death will have to be determined by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office.
