BERYL Two bodies were discovered under a shed in southwestern Utah near a pickup truck used by a pair of men who have been missing since late October, authorities said Sunday.
The bodies were unearthed Saturday night near the home of a man who was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender, the Iron County sheriff's office said.
"The bodies have not yet been identified but have been sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office for autopsies," the sheriff's office said in a statement.
Sheriff Mark Gower did not immediately return a phone call seeking more information.
Police have been looking for Chad Grijalva of Toquerville and Derek Davis of St. George, both 34. They were last seen in Davis' white Ford Ranger pickup, which was found Friday.
The pickup was discovered at the home of Martin Nelson, who was arrested Friday on a warrant accusing him of failing to register as a sex offender when he lived in a neighboring county, the sheriff's office said.
Nelson was also charged with growing marijuana, and "he remains a suspect in the homicide portion of this investigation," the sheriff's office said.
Beryl is a small town in a remote area of Iron County, more than 250 miles south of Salt Lake City.
Grijalva and Davis have been missing since Oct. 24. Their disappearances baffled family members because they had jobs and one of them missed a funeral.
