TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have discovered a body in Southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park.
The discovery prompted them to suspend a search for a missing man.
Park spokesperson Jennie Albrinck said Sunday the body was found in a hiking area and has not been identified. Authorities had been searching for 38-year-old Patrick Lynn Welz.
The Desert Sun reported Welz was last seen June 5 when he left Twentynine Palms to visit his father in Riverside.
He was reported missing and park staff found his truck in a parking lot.
