Authorities have found a man missing from Carlsbad dead.
They say 27-year-old Michael Martinez vanished last Tuesday night.
His family says close friends searching on horse found his body Sunday evening not far from where they had searched.
Martinez disappeared while at work at an oil field outside of town.
Jaime’s Welding Services says his crew searched and could not find him.
KWES-TV reports the crew headed back to town without Martinez, and his family says that should never have happened.
