ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah (AP) -- The body of a climber was found in a canyon at Zion National Park on Saturday, park officials reported.

The climber had a permit to descend Behunin Canyon on Friday. Friends reported him missing Friday night when he did not return as expected.

Searchers began looking for the man early Saturday. He was spotted by helicopter around noon.

He had apparently died in a fall, the National Park Service said. His name and hometown was not released.
