Utah hunter finds skeletal remains of man missing since 2019 in remote mountains

Date:

A man hunting for shed deer antlers in a remote mountainous area in Utah stumbled upon the human skeletal remains of a man who went missing in 2019, authorities said Friday.

The shed hunter was in the Hansel Mountains southeast of Snowville on April 27 when he alerted deputies to the skeletal remains, the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office said.

Box Elder County deputies and a search and rescue crew responded to the area and recovered the skeletal remains. The remains were turned over to the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner, which used dental records to identify them as Matthew Broncho.

No details about Broncho’s cause of death were immediately available.
