Rescuers last night found the body of the 41-year-old Wyoming man who went missing in the Wind River Mountains, WY, last weekend.

Thor Hallingbye of Cheyenne was reported missing Sunday morning after getting separated from his group near Gannett Peak on Saturday afternoon. Tip Top Search and Rescue announced late Monday afternoon that his body was discovered in Fremont County.

Local media reports that Thor got separated from his hiking group after summiting Gannett Peak around 2 pm Saturday, about 30 minutes from the top.

Hallingbye was an anesthesiologist and pain specialist at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.

Gannett Peak is a 13,810-foot (4,210m) summit in western Wyoming’s Wind River Range. Climbing the glacier-flanked mountain requires a multi-day hike and crossing treacherous snowpack.
