Missing hiker found dead


A body found on Oregon’s Mount Hood Thursday morning has been identified as a missing hiker from Arizona.

 David Yaghmourian, 30, had been missing since Monday. He was last seen at the eastern junction of the Timberline Trail at the Pacific Crest Trail, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said.

 A climber found Yaghmourian’s body at about 8,300-foot elevation. 

 Sgt. Sean Collinson with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said that is about 3,000 feet higher than where the search area was.

 “It looks like, from what we’ve seen, he missed a turn and then continued up the mountain and was trying to find a way to get back across, so he could cross over and come back down,” Collinson said.
