Man’s body found in Red Rock Canyon search for missing hiker
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A southern Nevada search and rescue crew looking for a hiker who went missing this week has discovered a man’s body in the Red Rock National Conservation Area.
It’s not clear if the body is that of 52-year-old Jeffery Kalista.
Las Vegas police spokesman Laura Meltzer told the Las Vegas Review-Journal Friday foul play is not suspected.
The Red Rock Search & Rescue team and local police had been looking for Kalista since Thursday morning when family members reported he was reported missing.
His car was found earlier at a trailhead inside the Red Rock Canyon. Police say he had departed for a hike in the canyon on Monday.
The Clark County coroner’s office will disclose the identity of the body once his relatives have been notified.
