Snowboarder Killed

By  | 

The body of a snowboarder found near Vail Mountain has been identified as 42-year-old Michael Combs -- the boyfriend of Clint Eastwood's daughter.

Resort spokeswoman Jen Brown says Combs had been missing since Monday. His body was found late Tuesday morning in a closed area near the bottom of Vail Mountain.

An Eagle County sheriff's spokeswoman says Combs had been snowboarding with Alison Eastwood.

Ski patrol members and crews that groom the slopes at night had been looking for him.

Coroner Kara Bettis says the cause of death had not been determined. She says she's waiting for the results of standard toxicology tests.

Combs was from Calabasas, California.
