SAGUACHE COUNTY, Colo. – A missing hiker in Saguache County has been found dead, officials confirmed on Friday.

Tyler Cline had been missing since Sunday, when he was believed to be hiking in the area of Kit Carson Peak and Challenger Point, officials said.

His car was found in the area, but his phone was either turned off or dead, according to his friends.

Both Kit Carson and Challenger are above 14,000 feet in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Hikers and climbers will often summit both because they are close, though the trail is difficult and usually makes for a long day at high altitude.

Chaffee County Search and Rescue North assisted in the search for Cline.
