Authorities find dead body of missing hiker in Echo Canyon

A sad ending to a search for a missing hiker at Echo Canyon.

Search crews spent the afternoon trying to locate the woman after she got separated from her family.

Just a few hours ago her body was found in a ravine on the North side of the mountain, it appears she fell.

Firefighters worked throughout the evening to bring the woman's body down Camelback Mountain, it's not the outcome that rescuers or her family were hoping for.
Authorities received a report that the woman who was visiting from the United Kingdom, was missing from a group hiking the trail.

Just after 6 p.m. Tuesday, a technical rescue team located the woman's body close to the bottom of the mountain near a home.

A helicopter was used to bring the body from the location to the bottom of the mountain.
