Precott, Ariz. — A missing hiker was found dead, his dog alive and lying next to him, in rugged forest in north-central Arizona five days after reporting he was lost, authorities said Thursday.
Searchers found the body of Donald Hayes on Wednesday near Mingus Mountain after six days of looking for the 74-year-old Prescott Valley man, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
The article goes on to state the following:
Hayes had called his wife to ask her to report to authorities that he was lost, which triggered six days of air and ground searching, the office said.
The rugged terrain in which Hayes’ body was found made it difficult for searchers to reach.
Hayes took his black and white Labrador, Ranger, hiking with him and was found lying next to Hayes when his body was found. The condition of the dog was not divulged, however, a sheriff’s spokesperson said, it “was more than likely very dehydrated and malnourished.”
Ranger was taken to the animal hospital for treatment before being returned to Hayes’ wife.
