JUAB COUNTY, Utah — The Juab County medical examiner confirmed Thursday that a woman’s body found on Oct. 13 is the body of Jan Pearson-Jenkins, who was last seen on Oct. 4.

Pearson-Jenkins went camping with 42-year-old Cody Young in early October. Later, Young contacted Pearson-Jenkins’ family to let them know he had left her alone in the desert following an argument.
