The body David Boyle of Whitehorse, who's been missing for nearly a month, has been found, his family says.

Family says David Boyle's truck was found south of Whitehorse along the Alaska Highway

RCMP have confirmed the body of 53-year-old David Boyle was found Friday evening.

Boyle's body was found near the Alaska Highway south of Whitehorse. 

Constable Dean Hoogland works with the Whitehorse RCMP says Boyle died when his truck ran off the road. 

"The truck was located down a steep embankment and it was partially covered by foliage and part of a tree so it was something that was very hard to see. You couldn't see it from the roadway at all and would be difficult to spot by air," he said.

Boyle was last seen on August 30th.

A poster campaign across Yukon asked the public for information.

RCMP also conducted aerial searches for the man and followed many tips from people who thought they had seen his truck.
