Authorities recover a body from Phoenix peak

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities have recovered a body on Piestewa Peak in north-central Phoenix and it's believed to be a hiker who was reported missing Monday morning.

The name of the man wasn't immediately released Tuesday but Phoenix police say he's in his 70s.

They say the body was found in a ravine on the peak.

Police say they were called from another agency about the missing man and that triggered a search.

Phoenix Fire Department rescue crews say the body was found late Tuesday morning.
