Missing Elk Grove Man Found Dead in Arizona

Missing Elk Grove Man Found Dead in Arizona

A missing Elk Grove man has been found dead in Arizona.  

Troy Schmeltz and his wife traveled to Yuma, Ariz., yearly to vacation at the Yuma Lakes RV Resort.  

On Valentine's Day he dined with his wife, then left for a nightly walk around the Resort -- he never came back.  

Days turned in weeks, and now nearly a month after his disappearance a body pulled the Gila River has been identified as Schmeltz.  

It is not known how Schmeltz' body got into the river, but the lake at the resort is fed by the Gila Gravity Canal which also returns to the river.  

Yuma County Sheriff's say there are no signs of foul play. There is no word if an autopsy will be performed.
