Little is known about the remains of an individual found in Payson Canyon on Friday evening.

A hiker located the body, Sgt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah County Sheriff's Office told 2News.

So far, the deceased person has yet to be identified. Cannon said it appeared the person had been dead for some time.

The sheriff's office will continue to investigate the scene, with aid from the medical examiner, to determine what caused the person to die — and who they were.

This is a developing story.
