ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) — Searchers have found the body of a hiker who was reported overdue from a mountaineering trek in the area of Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson says 58-year-old Ronald Webber, of Maitland, Florida, was found dead at the bottom of a cliff Friday. It appears he fell about 200 feet.

Webber reportedly started his hike from the Longs Peak trailhead Tuesday morning and did not return to his car. He was not prepared to spend the night, and it is unclear where he intended to go.

A search was launched Thursday.
