LOGAN — A 22-year-old woman who was reported missing from Logan Canyon was found dead, authorities said.

Family of the woman reported the woman missing Friday evening, and the woman's car was located by authorities in Logan Canyon, said Cache County Sheriff's Lt. Doyle Peck.

Peck said Monday the woman had been found dead from an apparent suicide. He did not release her name or any further information about the case.

Saturday, Peck said hiking and dog search and rescue teams were dispatched to the canyon and "covered a lot of ground" but to no avail.

Search and rescue teams returned to the canyon Sunday morning to resume the search efforts. Peck added authorities had interviewed family and friends to see if it was possible she went camping or possibly picked up by someone else before they located the woman's body.
