Body found in Teller County, autopsy planned

Teller County Coroner Dr. Earl Byrne says the body of a man found yesterday in a car between Divide and Florissant appears to be that of a man missing for more than a month.

A hiker found the body in a remote area.  The car's license and description matches that of one belonging to Jeremy Griess, 39.  He's a Westminster man reported missing on April 11.  The identity has not been confirmed, but that should happen after an autopsy, which is scheduled for Tuesday.  The cause of death is not known at this time.  Foul play is not suspected.

Flyers with his picture have been displayed from Woodland Park to Hartsel. Friends and family launched a website, and Facebook page to assist in the search.
