Missing Colorado climber Adam Fuselier found dead in Glacier National Park

A Colorado man who went missing while climbing in Glacier National Park was found dead Friday morning, park officials said.

Adam Fuselier, 32, of Castle Pines, Colorado, was reported late on Wednesday after a planned climb up Reynolds Mountain. His family had last spoken to him on Tuesday.

Rangers found his vehicle at Logan Pass Wednesday.

Tips from fellow hikers helped narrow the search area and his body was found Friday. His cause of death is still under investigation, park officials said.

Officials previously said the search for Fuselier began last Wednesday but was cut short due to rainy, windy and foggy conditions.

After the weather improved on Thursday, Two Bear Air Rescue joined the search, and a United States Forest Service helicopter was deployed the following day. On Friday, more than fifty searchers, a dog team and two helicopters were involved in the search.

Glacier National Park is located in northwestern Montana and features more than 700 miles of hiking trails. It is full of melting glaciers, valleys and lakes. It covers more than 1,500 square kilometers and includes 175 mountains.

Earlier this year a 28-year-old woman from Kansas died after falling into a creek in the park and swept into a canyon.

Last year, three people died in one week in the park.
