YOSEMITE (CBS/AP) - A hiker who went missing in Yosemite National Park has been found dead at the bottom of a cliff, authorities said.
Rangers found the body of 73-year-old Kenneth Stensby of Edina, Minn., near the base of the park’s Vernal Fall, where he had apparently fallen after stopping to take a photo, park officials said. Search crews had found his backpack on Sunday at the top of the waterfall. His camera was not in the pack.
His body was removed from the area around 1 p.m. Tuesday, a day after it was spotted from the air, according to park officials.
