Missing St. George man found dead after search

PINE VALLEY, Washington County — A St. George man who was reported missing Friday was found dead Monday evening in the Pine Valley area, said Rob Tersigni, chief deputy for the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Curtis "Tyler" Hansen's body was discovered on the ground surrounded by scrub brush about 100 feet away from his truck. Hansen died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Tersigni said.

A statewide attempt to locate Hansen was issued by the St. George Police Department after the man's wife reported him missing on Friday.

Tersigni said Hansen, 25, left behind a note for his wife.
