A 35-year-old Las Vegas man who went missing in August has been found.

James Wood was last seen on Aug. 3 on Route 169, just south of Overton and north of the Valley of Fire. His vehicle was later found in the area.

At the time, investigators were only able to track his footprints a short distance. Since then, several search and rescue crews have searched for Woods.


Police said at the time of his disappearance that Wood may have been under duress.

According to an email sent by the Boyd School of Law, Wood's body was found recently.

No details of when and where he was found were released by the law school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The email also says that members of the law school community are invited to gather in front of the law school on Nov. 16 in remembrance of Wood.

Wood was a student at Boyd at the time of his disappearance.
