CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Searchers have found the body of a 52-year-old Texas man who went missing after his truck caught fire in south-central Wyoming.

KTWO-AM reports that authorities say Gerry Slusher’s vehicle caught fire on Wyoming 70 near the Colorado-Wyoming border on Nov. 25 and he got lost after leaving the vehicle.

The Carbon County Sheriff's Office in Wyoming says Slusher initially was able to contact searchers, providing several different GPS coordinates. They found his body about 10:30 a.m. Nov. 26 in a deep ravine about a mile and a half (2.4 kilometers) from his vehicle.

A preliminary investigation determined that Slusher died from exposure.
