EMERY, Emery County — A man listed as a missing person Thursday was found dead in the wreckage of a rollover Friday morning.

A deputy responded to a report that the man was missing Thursday evening and searched the area, but due to darkness he was limited to the main roads, the Emery County Sheriff's Office said. The search resumed Friday morning and friends of the victim found the wreckage. Deputies confirmed the man had been killed.

It was likely a single vehicle accident. The man, whose name has not been released pending notification of family, was not wearing a seat belt. Deputies say alcohol may have been a factor.
