The body of a missing Casper man has been positively identified.

20 yr-old, Kolton Stoner, was found dead from a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head on Tuesday.

Natrona County Coroner, Connie Jacobsen, says his body was found near the Split Rock rest stop in western Natrona County.

Jacobsen says dental records were used to make the positive identification.

Social media sites had been notified of the search and word of his disappearance spread quickly.

Jacobsen says Kolton had recently moved with his parents to Casper from Thermopolis.
