Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Brandon Jones said the man's concerned friends went out and found his vehicle but not him.

MCSO began searching for him about 5 a.m. Friday and his body was found about 8:30 a.m. near North Watson Road and West McDowell Road on the south end of the White Tank Mountains.
