The body of a man found in Gem County has been identified.

Nigel Youngberg was found near the Payette River on Tuesday, April 26th, according to Gem County Coroner John Buck.

Youngberg, 31, had been missing from his Emmett home since April 10th following a disturbance in the Tanglewood area.

Officers stopped Youngberg near Highway 16 and the Little Gem Cycle Park later in the evening, but he fled on foot.

An autopsy was performed on April 28th and could take several weeks to determine the cause of death.
