VANCOUVER, Wash. — Authorities say the body of a Vancouver man missing since late February was found Friday east of the city above Dougan Falls.

The Columbian reports Skamania County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded Friday morning after getting a call about a body found on a private drive.

The sheriff’s office says deputies found 51-year-old Michael Conley. Deputies also found a vehicle that had been reported as stolen a few miles northeast of where the body was located.

The sheriff’s office said there was no obvious indication of what caused his death, but he had been exposed to snow and cold temperatures. The vehicle they found was off the road and in more than a foot of snow.

Conley’s family reported him missing Feb. 27.

The investigation into Conley’s death is ongoing.
