From AP:

Authorities say a body has been found in a mountain pass in an area of the eastern Sierra Nevada where a hiker has been missing since early this month.

Inyo County sheriff’s spokeswoman Carma Roper says the body has not been identified.

It was found Wednesday in Bishop Pass at an elevation of about 12,000 feet after a backpacker reported a rock slide.

Roper says a recovery team is bringing the body down from the mountains.

The missing hiker, 44-year-old Ric DeVan of San Diego, was reported overdue by family on July 5 and authorities looked for him in the region until the search was suspended Saturday.

Sad news. I love mountains, but they are dangerous.
