The man, who was from the Welches region, had reportedly gone with his brother to deposit the ashes beside a tree that held sentimental value to the family.
The brothers became separated after they had trouble locating the tree they had planted as kids, according to the sheriff’s office.
The family contacted the sheriff’s department for assistance after they had been unable to find the missing brother on their own.
Volunteers from the sheriff’s office and Portland Mountain Rescue began searching the area late on Monday night and located the body of the missing guy.
The man’s cause of death is still being investigated, although officials have speculated that he may have suffered from a medical issue. There was a lack of information at the time.
