A man who went missing last week from Valencia County has been found dead.
The Valencia County Sheriff says the body of Brandon Young, 29, was found about a mile away from where he apparently crashed a car on NM 47 in Tome.
Police say Young was last seen by his girlfriend Sunday night at the Western Skies Hotel in Los Lunas.
She told police they got in to a fight and Young left the hotel.
Police say they then learned about a crash on Highway 47 involving Young's employer's vehicle.
On Monday, a sheriff's spokesperson told KOB that it appears Young attempted to leave his vehicle to find help.
No foul play is suspected - but authorites will wait for an autopsy to determine his cause of death.
