Everett hiker found dead in Cascade foothills near Index

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.
