Yosemite hiker found dead

Yosemite officials said Wednesday James Michael Millet Jr., a 39-year-old man who went missing Aug. 11 after a day hike, has been found dead.

Rangers found Millet's body above Yosemite Valley on Tuesday, after he went on a hike to Upper Yosemite Fall and did not return to his vehicle.

Park officials have little information about Millet thus far, including where he lived, if he was hiking alone, or other details. An investigation is underway to determine Millet’s cause of death and other information about his disappearance.
