Search crews found the body Sunday of a 30-year-old Everett man who had become separated from his brother during a hike Saturday in the Cascade foothills east of Index.
The two men were hiking to Lake Simms along a primitive, fishermen’s trail. The hiker who made it back to the trailhead called for help when his brother didn’t show up by 5 p.m., KIRO-TV reported Sunday.
Snohomish County Search and Rescue spotted the body from a helicopter. It appeared that the man had fallen from a great height.
Efforts to recover the body continued Sunday evening.
