SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities recovered the body of a hiker a day after people reported hearing someone yelling for help near a mountain trail in Southern California.
The family of Robert Carey Jr. reported Saturday that he had not returned from a hike to San Gorgonio Mountain in the San Bernardino National Forest.
Relatives said the 33-year-old was an experienced hiker but had not hiked the peak before.
A helicopter crew was dispatched and spotted an unresponsive man at the base of a waterfall.
A rescue operation was postponed Saturday night because of darkness.
Carey’s body was recovered Sunday morning.
