Body found in national park might be that of missing Orange County man

Huntington Beach resident Alan Stringer, 40, went missing Sunday after going for a hike in the Inyo National Forest, according to authorities.

Authorities say a man found dead in California’s Kings Canyon National Park matches the description of a missing hiker.

The National Park Service says searchers discovered the body Thursday on a glacier at the base of Mt. Darwin in the eastern Sierra Nevada.

Investigators will determine whether it’s 40-year-old Alan Stringer of Huntington Beach. His family reported him missing on Monday.

The peak named for Charles Darwin is in a remote and scenic section of the national park where several mountains are named for promoters of the theory of evolution.
