ROY, UTAH — Utah police looking into the case of a missing San Gabriel man unearthed a body Thursday from a property where they’ve been digging for four days, however it was not clear if it belonged to the missing man, authorities said.
Further details about the body would not be available until an autopsy is performed by coroner’s officials, Layton police Lt. Garret Atkin said.
Police made the grisly find while investigating the disappearance of then-25-year-old Victor Flores of San Gabriel, who headed to Utah from his Southern California home in May for a job, according to Layton and San Gabriel police. He was last seen May 9.
An autopsy was scheduled to be performed Saturday, Atkin said, however results would likely not be available until early next week.
It was unclear what, if any, other evidence was found with the body.
