The body of a missing Dillon was found on Berthoud Pass Sunday afternoon after a multi-county search effort was conducted the previous day, according to local law enforcement.

Shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday the body of an unnamed male described as being in his early 20s was discovered inside a vehicle in Grand County, less than one mile from the top of Berthoud Pass. According to officials, the vehicle was parked on the side of Highway 40 at a pullout near mile post 241. A member of the missing man’s family discovered the body and contacted authorities.
