The body was located approximately 4.5 km's from the Lapie River Bridge, close to the Pelly River.
Ross River RCMP were able to confirm the identity as 45 year-old Gerald Erlinger, an Austrian Man who was a resident of Faro, Yukon.
Erlinger had been reported missing yesterday morning, June 29th. Jones says Criminality is not believed to be a factor in Erlinger's death.
