Human remains have been found in Utah in a burned car belonging to a former Mason County High School student who has been missing since last week.
The car belonging to Zachary Ruble was found, on fire, in a remote location in southern Utah on Thursday, authorities said.
Ruble, the son of James and Paula Ruble of Maysville, is a freshman at the University of Utah. He is a 2008 graduate of Mason County High School.
The car thought to be owned by Ruble was found burning near Zion National Park, a place that Ruble liked to visit for hiking and climbing.
