A 69-year-old Olympia, Wash., man missing in Yosemite National Park since Thursday has been found dead, park officials said Sunday.
Gene R. Hall was found about 2:30 p.m. Saturday in his tent. He'd apparently died of natural causes, according to a park statement.
His tent was found by searchers off a trail near Fletcher Lake, in the Vogelsang vicinity.
Hall had been hiking alone in the area and was reported missing when he failed to show up for a previously scheduled engagement.
