Body found at base of cliff in Mount Rainier National Park

A body was found at the base of a cliff on the south side of Mount Rainier National Park yesterday, according to park officials.

Rangers were investigating a vehicle that was parked for several days at Ricksecker Point, an overlook on the south side of the park.

A license plate check didn’t turn up anything unsual, but when the car’s registration was checked Sunday night, it led them to the report of a missing person.

A ground search led rangers to the body at the base of the cliff. The person’s injuries were consistent with having fallen from a great height, according to park officials.

The identity of the person has not been released.

The body was taken to the Lewis County Coroner’s Office.

Park officials continue to investigate what happened.
