38-year-old didn’t show at work. His body was found in Arizona tourist spot, cops say

A man described as an “avid hiker” was found dead on a popular Arizona trail after colleagues reported he didn’t show up for work, sheriff’s officials said.

The 38-year-old man was reported missing Thursday, July 6, after not arriving for work, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

His roommate told officials the man frequently hiked the Cathedral Rock and Bell Rock trails near Sedona, a popular tourist destination, the office said.

Deputies found his vehicle in the Bell Rock trail parking lot and pinged his phone, which showed he was somewhere nearby, sheriff’s officials said.

“There was no reason at that time to think the man was in danger, until later that evening when the man still had not surfaced,” officials said.

Darkness hindered efforts to search for the missing man, but on Friday, July 7, searchers deployed ground teams, mountain bikes, dogs and a drone, the sheriff’s office said.
