A Wyoming man who was reported missing last week is believed to have been found dead in Utah.

A body, which authorities belive to be that of 92-year-old Lyman resident James Pritchard, was found Thursday in Summit County, Utah, by people who were traveling through the area. The body was found in the North Slope/Gilbert Creek area.

Positive identification will be made by the Utah Medical Examiner's Office, according to the Uinta County Sheriff's Office.

Pritchard hadn't been seen or heard from since May 21. Multiple law enforcement agencies have been searching for him.

Pritchard suffered from onset dementia, according to the sheriff's office. Authorities said he enjoyed fishing and spending time in the mountains, and he may have driven to a remote area without being prepared for the weather.
