OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Utah authorities have recovered a body found by hikers.

The body had been brought down the mountain Sunday night by Weber County Sheriff’s Office search and rescue crews.

Lt. Nate Hutchinson says the hikers did not have cellphone reception in the area, so they hiked down the mountain to call police.

The hikers had reported the body at about 3:40 p.m.

They led search and rescue crews to the body in an area above 29th Street, which had been near the Waterfall Canyon Trail.

Hutchinson did not have information on a cause of death or the body’s identity.
