Body found in Kings Canyon National Park matches description of missing hiker
KINGS CANYON NATIONAL PARK — Authorities say a man found dead in California's Kings Canyon National Park matches the description of a missing hiker.
The National Park Service says searchers discovered the body Thursday on a glacier at the base of Mount Darwin in the eastern Sierra Nevada.
Investigators will determine whether it's 40-year-old Alan Stringer. His family reported him missing on Monday.
The peak named for Charles Darwin is in a remote and scenic section of the national park where several mountains are named for promoters of the theory of evolution.
