A man who had last been seen on Saturday has been found dead, according to the Albany County Sheriff's Office.

The body of 42-year-old Daniel Tinney was found by deputies at roughly 12 p.m. Wednesday near Fox Creek Road, west of Laramie. The preliminary investigation indicates Tinney died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Albany County Sheriff's Office first learned of Tinney having gone missing late Sunday night, when they received an 'attempt to locate' notice regarding Tinney from the Laramie County Sheriff's Office.

That notice indicated that Tinney had made vague suicidal statements and was believed to be in the area of Black Hall Mountain in Carbon County.

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, Albany County Undersheriff Josh DeBree thanked the community for its help in trying to locate Tinney.
