Sheriff's office: Idaho man found dead in backcountry near McCall
McCALL, Idaho (KBOI) —
After going missing, an Idaho man was found dead in Idaho's backcountry, near McCall, according to the Idaho County Sheriff's Office. Ernest Wright, of Warren, left Friday afternoon to go hunting, but never came back home. His family and friends went looking for him, but when they couldn't find him, they called police.
The Clearwater County Backcountry team flew a helicopter over the area to look for Wright. Before the chopper could find him though, family members spotted his vehicle on a forest service road about three miles from town. The sheriff's office says he went off the road, and passed away.
He was taken to the Heikkila Funeral Home in McCall.
