WEST JORDAN, Utah (AP) — A West Valley City, Utah police officer who was last seen Tuesday and never showed up to work has been found dead in Wyoming with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

West Jordan Sgt. Dan Roberts says 37-year-old Michael Valdes was found Thursday night when authorities responded to a single-vehicle accident in Sweetwater County.

Police say Valdes saw his wife Tuesday evening and told her he was leaving for work. The West Jordan resident wasn’t seen by co-workers, friends or family since.

Utah officials announced their search for him and a black Infiniti SUV on Thursday.

Roberts says there were no obvious signs that Valdes was suicidal before he disappeared.
