The search for a missing boy at the Flaming Gorge ended Tuesday night after his body was recovered from the Big Firehole Canyon area.

Deputies responded to a report of two missing people Friday at about 7 p.m. Deputies were informed a 34-year-old Rock Springs man and a 7-year-old boy were missing since departing their campsite in a side-by-side at about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. A person later reported the pair never returned to their camp in the ATV.

AT about 6:30 a.m. Saturday, deputies located an oil slick and debris floating on the surface of the water below a 200-foot cliff.
