SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a missing hiker has been found dead at the bottom of a cliff outside of Salt Lake City.

Unified Police said in a news release that the hiker was discovered early Saturday morning in White Pine Canyon. They believe the hiker fell from a cliff.

The hiker had been reported missing Friday night after the victim didn’t show up at a pickup site that had been arranged with a friend.

The hiker was in the Little Cottonwood Canyon area east of Salt Lake City.

Search and rescue teams couldn’t find the hiker Friday night. They resumed their search Saturday morning. Officers aboard a helicopter spotted the deceased hiker.

Authorities are not releasing the identity of the hiker until the person’s family can be notified.
