ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. — A cadaver search dog has found a man’s body in southwestern Wyoming.

Officials in Sweetwater County say the body found Tuesday is likely related to a 2015 missing person case. Sheriff Mike Lowell says an autopsy is planned to confirm the identification.

The body was found near the town of Superior, which is east of Rock Springs.
