(KSL News) The body of a missing miner in Nevada has been found.

Crews using night vision equipment found the body of 30-year-old Dan Shaw early this morning.

Shaw was working with a blasting crew back on June 19, when the ground gave way underneath him and the loader he was working on.

Two other miners working there were not injured. Crews are still working to remove nearly 5,000 tons of rock and clay to reach him.
