SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Searchers say they've found the body of a southern Utah man whose disappearance has brought charges against three people.

Authorities said Friday a Bureau of Land Management geologist found the body believed to be 30-year-old David Heisler in a remote area on the Arizona strip, near the Utah border.

The identity will be confirmed by the Mohave County Medical Examiner's Office in Arizona.

Heisler was reported missing June 27 after his father found bloodstains throughout his home and called police. A bullet casing was later found in his abandoned car.

Authorities have filed aggravated kidnapping and other charges against the mother of his child, her boyfriend and their landlord.

Officials say Heisler had been awarded full custody of the girl shortly before his disappearance.
