Searchers find body of missing hunter in El Dorado County

A hunter reported missing Tuesday afternoon in El Dorado was found dead this morning.

The 50-year-old man was reported missing about 3 p.m. Tuesday, and search and rescue teams worked throughout the night trying to locate him, according to an El Dorado County Sheriff's Office news release.

The search resumed this morning, and an additional 25 search members arrived at the command post. About 9 a.m., one of the teams searching the area on foot found the hunter on the side of the mountain. Sheriff's deputies arrived and confirmed that he was deceased.

The man's name has not been released pending the corner's confirmation of his identity. Officials said the circumstances and cause of death are under investigation.
