EAGLE MOUNTAIN — The body of an Eagle Mountain man who was reported missing last week has been found inside a pickup truck just north of state Route 73 in Utah County.

A man searching for Christopher Zoellner discovered his pickup at Five Mile Pass this morning, according to Utah County Sheriff Sgt. Spencer Cannon.

Zoellner's body was taken to the state medical examiner. Cannon said an autopsy will determine his manner of death.

Zoellner was last heard from on Jan. 10 after sending a text message to a family member, according to the Utah County Sheriff's Office. Officials say his debit card was used that day at a Maverik convenience store in Eagle Mountain and then at a different store in Riverton.

Cannon said Saturday there are no indications of foul play or suspicious circumstances in Zoellner's death.
