Missing Man’s Body Found In Gila River

Almost a month later, finally some closure for the family of a man missing since Valentine’s Day. An official from the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office confirmed with our television partner KYMATV that a recovery team found the body of 73-year-old Troy Schmeltz. They found the body of the elderly man in the Gila River Sunday, northeast of the Yuma Lakes RV Resort where he lived. Multiple search teams tried to find him for almost a month. His wife said she last saw him on February 14th. Officials say investigators have not found any evidence to suggest anyone else was involved in Schmeltz's death.
