Human remains found near vehicle of missing Idaho man

Human remains and the car belonging to a missing Idaho man were found Thursday evening at the bottom of a ravine off Idaho State Highway 11.

David Carrico, 63, has not been seen since Sept. 24. The Clearwater County Sheriff’s Office listed him as missing earlier this week.

The remains were found 400 feet away from Carrico’s 2001 Subary Legacy station wagon at the bottom of a ravine off Highway 11 approximately 11 miles west of Weippe.

Authorities describe the remains as “badly decomposed” and say they have been transported to Pine Hills Funeral Chapel in Orofino where they will remain pending positive identification.

Carrico’s next of kin have been notified of the situation.

The case remains under investigation.
