Dee Ray Humphries, age 83 of Delta, who has been missing since late June was found in Nevada.  Mr. Humphries’ car was located on a little used dirt road about three miles south of Highway 722, sixty miles east of Fallon during the late afternoon on Friday, August 16.  The Churchill County Sheriff’s Office searched the area until dark, and resumed the search early the next morning.  Humphries’ body was located about on quarter mile south of the car in an area of sage brush and juniper trees.  No foul play is suspected and the Churchill County Coroner issued a preliminary finding of accidental death due to extreme weather conditions. 

 

Millard County Sheriff’s deputies were en route to Fallon when the body was found.  They continued and met with Churchill County deputies and members of the Humphries family to coordinate final investigative efforts. 

 

Safe Tip

Think carefully before buying a firearm for protection. Guns can be stolen and sold to anyone, or captured and used on you or the police. If you do own a gun, keep it locked up with the ammunition secured separately and learn how to use it safely.
