OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Police are investigating the death of a man whose body two hikers found.

The hikers discovered the body around 8 p.m. Friday in the foothills east of Ogden. Police found no identification on the dead man, who appeared to be in his mid-20s, said Ogden Police Lt. Loring Draper.

The body was in a small ravine near a dirt road.

"There does not appear to be any indication of suicide," Draper said. "We don't know if there was foul play involved or if he fell."

Draper said four detectives, a crime scene technician and medical examiner erected portable lighting late Friday to investigate the area.

Ogden police have no missing persons reports, Draper said.
