A man who went missing Thursday was found dead Monday, his family says.

A search party found the body of 22-year-old Wayne Many Guns in a snowy field near Browning in the early afternoon Monday, his sister La Shinta Many Guns said.

A Missing and Endangered Person Advisory for Many Guns was canceled after he was found Monday afternoon, according to the Montana Department of Justice. Authorities issued the alert because they believed he was in danger of exposure to harsh winter conditions. 

Officials said he may have been trying to travel from Browning to Lame Deer or Billings without a vehicle.

Blackfeet Tribal Police would not confirm Many Guns' death.

Additional details were not provided by the DOJ.
