A Virginia hiker has been found dead after she vanished on a solo hike in Glacier National Park, officials said.
Jennifer Lee Coleman, 34, of Richmond, was reported missing Wednesday after she didn’t return from a hike on Logan Pass, the highest elevation in the park, the National Park Service said.
Following the discovery of her abandoned car atop the peak, about 50 people joined the search for her, officials said.
Park officials said Sunday that her body was found in a steep and rocky area near the Continental Divide.
Her cause of death has not been determined, officials said.
Coleman’s parents, Hal and Sharon Coleman, who are leaders of the AWARE foundation, which advocates for missing people, confirmed her death on their Facebook page.
“Worse possible news today, Jennifer has been found deceased,” the post said. “Many thanks to everyone for the kind words, prayers, messages. People have been a blessing to us. We are thankful and appreciative to the bottom of our hearts. No words to describe the grief.”
