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