OGDEN — Police have identified the body of a man near the Ogden Nature Trail over the weekend.

The remains of Richard Hultz, 40, of Roy were found by hikers on Sunday, according to Weber County Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Cortney Ryan.

Hultz was reported missing to the Roy Police Department on Sept. 8. Ryan said the cause and manner of Hultz’s death is still under investigation, but there is no cause for public concern.
