(KUTV) After almost two weeks of searching, the body of a missing Utah man has been found.

John Page, was last seen seen at a Maverick in Centerville, Utah, on July 24, before his car was found five days later near the Tooele and Box Elder Country line. The Page family believed he may have stopped his car to go hiking in the mountains and never returned.

Around 9 a.m. on Friday the Page family and Tooele County Sheriff's Department both confirmed that his body has been found.

The family search team discovered Page's body earlier on Friday in a remote, rocky area that could only be reached on foot.

Deputy Scott Caldwell with the Tooele County Sheriff's Office said Page’s body was located near the Lakeside Mountains.

“The Page family found his body Saturday morning - even after the aerial and ATV searches were called off,” Caldwell said. “The family searched the area on horseback, and on foot with dogs, and that paid off. They were determined to find that closure.”

“There's been several volunteers consisting of family, friends and West Bountiful police officers. In the end, John Page’s body was located near a rocky cliff,” Caldwell said.
