MISSOULA -

The Boise County Sheriff's Department confirmed on Thursday evening that officials in Idaho located Lucius Robbi and his vehicle.

The 21-year-old University of Montana student was reported missing when he never showed up for the first day of classes.

The Custer County Sheriff's Office released a statement this morning around 2 a.m. detailing their findings.

At approximately 6:20 p.m. on August 28, 2014, the Stanley Fire Department recovered the body of Lucius Robbi from a one-car accident.

It is believed that the accident occurred on August 19th near the Stanley Lake turn off along US Highway 21.

The vehicle careened off of the highway, and down a 60-foot embankment, colliding with several large pine trees in the process.

Custer County Coroner Vicki Armbruster said that Lucius died immediately from blunt force trauma to the head.

The tip of a kayak was spotted in the trees by a private contracted helicopter searching for Robbi.

The tire tracks that would normally be left behind on the soft roadside shoulder were washed away and obscured by wet weather and thunderstorms. 

The family of Lucius Robbi thanks all of the friends, family, and community members who dedicated their time to searching for Lucius.

Lucius' family felt an "overwhelming outpouring of love and heroic effort" through peoples' "countless acts of kindness."
