LOA, Utah (AP) - Officials have identified a hiker found dead in southern Utah as a 52-year-old Missouri man.

Wayne County spokeswoman Kassidee Brown says David Ross Goodrich of Kansas City was found about 2 a.m. Wednesday off a trail in Horseshoe Canyon.

Authorities say he was carrying only a camera, not food and water, and didn’t appear to be ready for the triple-digit temperatures.

Officials say a group of hikers came upon the man about 1 p.m. Tuesday, and he asked them for food and water. The group gave him supplies, and also directed another group of hikers to take his dog out of his car as he requested.

Rescuers were called when the man hadn’t returned to his car by 10:30 that night.
