GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a 71-year-old man who was reported missing after he didn't return from a hike in Colorado's high country has been found dead.

Clear Creek County Undersheriff Bruce Snelling says Don Chambliss, of Englewood, went missing in the area of Gray's and Torrey's peaks on Tuesday. Chambliss' body was found Thursday afternoon on Torrey's Peak at about 13,600 feet above sea level.

Snelling did not release any details about the death. The body is expected to be recovered Friday.
