The body of a missing hiker from Carson City, Nevada has been found in Kings Canyon National Park.
Search and rescue crews located the body of 60-year-old Gary Dankworth on the south face of Norman Clyde Peak, Kings Canyon National Park spokeswoman Dana Dierkes said in a news release Friday.
According to reports, Dankworth -- an experienced backcountry hiker -- left his campsite at Finger Lake to climb Norman Clyde Peak on Saturday. He was expected to return that evening.
Dankworth's friends called the Inyo County Sheriff's Department and reported him overdue Sunday morning, Dierkes said.
The incident remains under investigation.
