Police believe they found the body of a Spearfish man, missing for a month, on Lookout Mountain Wednesday afternoon.   Robert Keith Johnson, 26, had been missing since the evening of March 10, when he was last seen at his home. 

While a forensic examination has to be conducted to confirm the identity and cause of death, a preliminary confirmation of Johnson's identity was possible because of his physical characteristics and known tattoos.

The area where Johnson was found had been searched before but the body wasn't noticed because it was covered in snow.  The body was located on the northeast side of the mountain in a thickly wooded draw that had heavy snow during prior searches.

People close to Johnson have indicated that he was possibly having mental health or substance
