— Authorities have recovered the body of an Arizona man who apparently fell while hiking at the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

Rangers were notified Wednesday afternoon that a Mesa man camping on a houseboat with his family had not returned from a hike in a side canyon of Warm Creek Bay.

A ground and air search located the body of 23-year-old Porter Dixon at the base of a cliff.

Investigators believe Dixon fell approximately 70 feet, sustaining multiple injuries that resulted in his death.
