Leonard Corby ‘Corb’ Fisher’s presumed body was recovered on Monday, April 20, at 11:30 a.m.just miles from his last known location in the Brown's Park area. Search crews, with the support of the Daggett County sheriff’s office and rescue personnel from Uintah County, were searching for Mr. Fisher for several days.
“Investigators have processed the area where the body was found. There did not appear to be any obvious evidence of foul play,” said Sheriff Bailey of Daggett County, “The body has been sent to the Utah State Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy to determine cause of death and officially confirm identity.”
The missing camper was last seen on March 31 or April 1 and was reported missing on April 4, with searches immediately being conducted the next day, but being halted due to the world’s current circumstances and the limited resources available to the sheriff’s office.
When searches resumed, the parties consisted of members from Uintah County and Moffat County. When the body was recovered, a driver’s license with Mr. Fisher’s identity inside a wallet was found on the person and the next of kin was notified immediately after the body’s recovery.
“On behalf of my office and the searchers involved in the effort to find Mr. Fisher, I extend my sincere condolences to his family and friends,” the sheriff said, “I’m grateful to the search crews from Uintah and Moffat counties who volunteered their time and talents to help us with this search. I also appreciate the other searchers from Utah and Colorado who were planning to come to Daggett County today, before Mr. Fisher's body was found, to help us continue the search.”
