Flagstaff, AZ – The deceased male for which a flyer was recently issued has been identified as Alan Arvey, an 87-year-old resident of Sun City, AZ.  Alan Arvey had been reported missing by his family to Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) earlier in the week.  Detectives with the MCSO contacted our agency with information that the image on our unidentified person flyer resembled the description of Mr. Arvey, leading to the identification of the deceased person.
