Sad news in the search for a Mt. Baldy hiker missing since Saturday. A body believed to be that of Michelle Yu, 49,  has been found by search crews.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said a rescue-team member spotted what was believed to be the body of Yu, an experienced hiker from Venice. Officials are still waiting for positive identification. The ID and cause of death will be determined by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Because of the terrain, crews could not remove the body Wednesday evening but planned to do so early Thursday.
