A boater found the remains of Averin Scott in the Snake River Sunday evening, 10 days after he was reported missing.
Scott went missing from his house on S. Highway 89 on July 3 and besides his shoe being found near the water, police had no other solid leads regarding his disappearance.
A private boater spotted something in the river near the Flying Saddle Resort on Sunday around 4:30 and called police, Lincoln County Sheriff Shane Johnson said.
"The boater stayed there until search and rescue could get there," Johnson said.
Star Valley Search and Rescue pulled Scott's body from the water closer to 6 p.m. Sunday.
"The coroner got called out to take care of that and be in touch with the other agencies to notify families," Johnson said. "They had a clothing description on scene."
Crews had been out almost every day Since July 4 searching for Scott on the Snake River and the banks of the river.
"Typically what we do in these situations, it isn't as uncommon as we'd like to hope, search and rescue members and deputies will go take a look or search and rescue members will look at places that are likely for the body to reappear," Johnson said.
The family confirmed it was Scott via text to the Jackson Hole News&Guide Monday morning.
"It is tough but not knowing and not having some closure is really tough," Johnson said.
Scott was found about 25 miles south of where he likely fell in the river, officials said.
