According to the Searching for Josh Carter online group, the body of the 27-year-old missing Frenchtown man has been reportedly found near the scene of a fatal accident. The details concerning the accident have not yet been released, and no official confirmation has been issued by local law enforcement or family at this early hour.

In what could be one of the largest Missoula area manhunts in recent years, with 9,000 members in the Facebook search and rescue group, and thousands of handbills and posters placed around town over the past 10 days, tonight members of the local online network are revealing that Carter’s body has been located.

Unconfirmed reports are pouring in to our news room through the overnight hours while most law enforcement main offices for us to reach out to are currently closed. Once more information has been received and verified you will be notified first through News Talk KGVO.

Below, find an official news release from The Missoula County Sheriff’s Department…

At around 7:30 pm a rancher was walking the fence line of his property located on Lacasse Lane when he spotted a pick up truck at the bottom of a steep embankment bordering Pulp Mill Road.  The rancher returned to his house and called 911 to report the found yellow Ford truck.  The rancher and his son suspected that the truck matched the description of Josh Carter’s missing vehicle.

 

Deputies arrived on scene and confirmed that the vehicle was that of Josh Carter’s.  Josh’s body was also located.  Montana Highway Patrol conducted a crash investigation and it appears as though Josh lost control of his vehicle while traveling east on Pulp Mill Road near the railroad track overpass.  The vehicle hit and then crossed over the guardrail, rolled down the embankment approximately 100 feet and came to rest in the bottom of a drainage ditch.  Josh unfortunately was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.

 

The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office would like to offer our deepest condolences to Joshua’s family and his many friends.
