A man from New Mexico who was reported missing after traveling to Arizona last month has been found dead.

Police in Farmington, New Mexico, say the body of 44-year-old Craig Cavanaugh was found and identified Wednesday in Coconino County.

Cavanaugh reportedly left Farmington on July 4 to head to Peoria for a new job, but never arrived.

His cell phone last pinged in Payson, and his credit cards were used by two men in Payson, Glendale and Peoria in early July.

His truck was recovered in July as well.

Two suspects seen on video were previously identified in the case and are still wanted for questioning.

Anyone with information about this death investigation is asked to contact Coconino County Sheriff's Office at 928-774-4523.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help his family.
