ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) — An investigation is underway after a climber found a body on Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Park officials say the climber was on the Keyhole Route of the 14,259-foot peak when he and his group saw the body below The Ledges area at about 7 a.m. Friday.

Park rangers reached the body about three hours later and flew it by helicopter to a nearby meadow. Park officials have not released the name, age or hometown of the person or how he died.
