Juvenile male's body found Sunday morning


— The Craig Police Department is investigating the death of a juvenile male found Sunday morning at the base of Sandrocks cliff.

Police officers, Craig Fire/Rescue and the Moffat County Sheriff's Office assisted in the call, which was reported about 9:16 a.m. Sunday.

John Forgay, of the Police Department, said the male appeared to be about 17 years old. He said the circumstances that led to the male's death are unknown at this point.

"It's too early to determine the circumstances that may have occurred," said Forgay, adding that the matter is under investigation.

A local resident spotted a blanket at the top of the cliff and the body below, Forgay said, and called authorities. He added that an autopsy is scheduled to take place.
