His body was discovered around 9:45am this morning, just south of last known cell phone tower coordinates near Crab Creek, west of Royal City.

Nearly 100 staff and volunteers from Fairchild AFB, Grant County Search and Rescue, Mounted Posse, Grant County Fire District 10 and 11, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Spokane Sheriff’s Office, Grant County Sheriff’s Office, and numerous civilian volunteers have been on the ground, on horseback, ATV/ORV since Saturday. Civilian aircraft volunteered for the search as well as a helicopter from Spokane Sheriff’s Office, and a plane from Fairchild.
