The National Park Service located a body along the Colorado River within Grand Canyon National Park Tuesday.
Based on evidence within the body, they released a statement that said it is believed to be Joshua Tourjee, who was a missing 34-year-old river guide.
The body was recovered Wednesday by park rangers and transported to the Coconino County Medical Examiner.
Tourjee was reported missing from a commercial trip on the Colorado River on Sept. 12, when he failed to return to camp near Pancho’s Kitchen.
An investigation into the incident will be conducted by the National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner.
No other information was immediately available.
