AMERICAN FORK CANYON — Authorities spent Tuesday evening investigating a body that was found in American Fork Canyon earlier in the day.

Canyon visitors found the body in the Mineral Basin area and reported it at approximately 4 p.m., Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Peter Quittner said.

Investigators were still in the canyon late Tuesday evening, Quittner said. Neither the cause of death nor the identity of the individual have been released.

"We are still investigating it, but there does not appear to be anything suspicious about it," Quittner said.
