GLEN HAVEN, Colo. — The Larimer County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that a body was found by crews who were searching for a missing man near Glen Haven.

The family of 53-year-old Jerry Allbright reported him missing after he didn't return home on Friday, deputies said.

LCSO Emergency Services and other agencies began their search efforts with assistance from Civil Air Patrol.

Cellphone data collected from Allbright's text message indicated that he was about two miles west of his home.

The sheriff's office said on Monday night, crews found a body that they believe is Allbright. The man's body was recovered Tuesday morning, the sheriff's office said. 

The coroner's office will determine how he died. The sheriff's office said foul play is not suspected.
