OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Authorities in Weber County say they’ve found the body of a missing Utah man body in an Ogden-area reservoir.

The Standard-Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/1XWIjjo) that authorities have confirmed the body found Thursday was 38-year-old Joseph Shultz of Harrisville.

An autopsy was scheduled.

Sheriff’s officials had said that Shultz’s disappearance appeared to be a suicide.

Officials say his body was found in the water at Pineview Reservoir about 50 feet down a steep embankment below a pullout where his pickup truck was found May 15.

The father of four had left home the day before without his phone or wallet.

Officials say the back window of the vehicle was smashed, but think the damage was vandalism unrelated to Schultz’s disappearance.
