The body of Thomas Heng, a 31-year-old hiker from San Rafael, Calif., has been found in the Inyo National Forest, officials said late Wednesday.

Heng left Sunday for what was supposed to be a day hike to the summit of Mt. Langley, which rises to 14,026 feet, on the boundary between Inyo and Tulare counties.

Officials said he made it to the top, signing a register at the summit. The experienced hiker was last seen about 1 p.m. Sunday.

No further details about where or how Heng's body was found have been released.
