Arizona: Alan Arvey identified as body found in Oak Creek Canyon

Arizona authorities have identified the body of a man found in Oak Creek Canyon in Coconino County as Alan Arvey of Sun City.

Alan F. Arvey, 87, was reported missing by his family to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Coconino County sheriff’s deputies received a report of a body of an elderly man on August 17 along Highway 89A, near milepost 389.

This information was shared by the Maricopa County deputies, which led to the identification of the body.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office had said he was last seen at his home Aug. 20 by a neighbor. That reporting party did not mention Arvey leaving the home for any period of time.

Arvey’s body may also be connected to a Coconino County sheriff investigation into a stolen vehicle near the same area the body was found.

“At this time we are not able to release any additional information due to the ongoing investigation,” Lt. Gerrit J. Boeck with CCSO stated in an email when asked if the body of Mr. Arvey showed any signs of foul play or if his vehicle was located.

Police provided no further information due to the ongoing investigation.

MCSO said they found no signs of foul play at his home.

According to his family, Arvey only left his home for short periods of time for dinner or shopping.

Anyone with information about the case can contact Coconino County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 928-226-5087.
