IRON COUNTY — A missing hunter was found dead Monday morning near state Route 20 in Iron County.

The hunter, a man in his early-70s, was hunting alone and reportedly told his family he would stay in contact with them, Iron County Sheriff’s Lt. Del Schlosser said Monday. When the man’s family didn’t hear from him, they reported him missing.

Iron County Search and Rescue volunteers began looking for the man some time Sunday night.

As this report is published, the name of the deceased man has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

While Schlosser could not confirm the exact location of where the man was found, he said was not found at his camp site.

This is a developing story and will be updated as information is made available.
