PRICE -- The body of a Central Utah man whose disappearance prompted an Endangered Person Advisory was discovered Saturday.

Troopers say the body of 87-year-old Billy Webb was found in his truck at the bottom of a 300-foot embankment on State Road 191 near milepost 264. A Helper Fire Department volunteer discovered the body just after 12:30 p.m.

Troopers say it appears Webb lost control of his vehicle and crashed down the embankment. He was wearing his seat belt.

Webb was last seen Sunday, March 21, in Price. Family members became worried when they hadn't heard from him and called police, who issued the Endangered Person Advisory Friday.

The Utah Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
