PRESCOTT, AZ — Officials say an 85-year-old man reported missing from the Sycamore Canyon Creek area has been found dead.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office says David Williams left his home to visit a friend on Thursday. His vehicle was found near the trailhead at Sycamore Canyon Creek, but he was not with the vehicle.

Authorities say Williams' body was found Monday afternoon by a search and rescue team less than a mile downstream from the creek crossing.

YCSO says they believe Williams drowned while attempting to cross to get to a friend on the other side of the creek.
