DARBY – A Darby man who has been missing since Valentine’s Day was found dead of an apparent suicide on Friday.

Dave Norton, 46, was reported missing from his Darby area home on Feb. 14 by his employer.

Norton had left his home while it was snowing on a mountain bike without his cellphone.

He was spotted by multiple people heading southbound from Darby towards Lost Trail, but his body was found in the Tin Cup area, which is in the opposite direction.

Darby Town Marshall Larry Rose says he was found by wolverine researchers while they were reviewing camera footage in the area.
