Body Found Near Cody

Laramie, WY – The body of a 29-year-old Cody man who had been missing for nearly a week has been found at the scene of a single-vehicle accident.

The Park County Sheriff's Office says Alexander Michael Waits was reported missing by his family on Sept. 26th when he failed to show up for work.

Sheriff Scott Steward says his office received a report Sunday of a crashed pickup truck in a ravine about 14 miles southwest of Cody.

Waits was found dead at the scene.

Authorities believe Waits lost control of the vehicle and it plunged about 200 feet down a steep embankment.
