Body Of Missing Hiker Found Following Search

The body of Gary Dankworth, 60, the subject of an extended search, was found last Thursday and recovered from the Middle Palisades of Kings Canyon National Park. Dankworth was found on the south face of Norman Clyde Peak during search and rescue operations managed by the NPS and Inyo County Sheriff’s Department. Dankworth was an experienced backcountry hiker who was camping north of the peak. He reportedly embarked from his campsite at Finger Lake on July 28th with the objective of reaching the summit of Norman Clyde Peak, which is located above Big Pine, California. He was expected to return to his campsite that evening. His companions contacted the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department and reported him overdue the following morning. More than 40 people and four helicopters from a number of agencies were involved in the five day search.
