WALLOWA COUNTY, Ore. -- The Wallowa County Sheriff's Office says they believe the body of 42-year-old Ricky M. Flores of Caldwell was found Wednesday morning.

The sheriff's office was notified Wednesday that someone had found a body in the Snake River, approximately 13 miles downstream from the Hells Canyon Dam boat launch. Identification found on the body and an investigation lead deputies to believe that it is the body of Flores. The remains will be examined by the Baker County medical examiner.

Flores has been missing since a March 21 boat accident near Hells Canyon Dam. Two other men, 42-year-old Charles W. Gissel, of Ontario, and 43-year-old Eric Meyerhoffer of Payette were also in the boat and were able to make it to shore.
