    FORT WORTH, Texas -- The body of a traveling emergency room nurse, who was on assignment in California, was found in Arizona, his family said Friday.

    Mike Edwards' body was found in a remote area near Page, Ariz. His family said he was identified by his dog tags, and authorities said his belongings were found at a nearby campsite. An autopsy will be conducted by Arizona officials who speculated that Edwards may have died of exposure.

    "He would never want to leave us," said his wife, Lisa Edwards. "I know that. He loves us so much, and we love him."

    His family said he had not been heard from at all since a phone call to his wife, Lisa, on April 13. Lisa Edwards said her husband planned a 400-mile overnight drive to Sacramento, Calif., to pick up his nursing license.

    "That's the worst part is waiting, and not knowing, and not being able to do anything at all -- just waiting," Lisa Edwards said.

    There was no word on how Edwards got to Page, which is more than 500 miles from where he was staying in California. His family said he may have been dead for as long as a week when his body was found Friday.
