A pair of hunters came across Chretien's body on Saturday in a wooded area in Northern Elko County, Nevada officials said. His identity was confirmed by information in his wallet and business cards.
Det. Dennis Journigan of the county sheriff's department said Chretien's remains were discovered in a secluded area of Merritt Mountain, about 11 kilometres west from where he set off.
Journigan said the remains were intact and hadn't been scattered by animals.
