The body of a hiker missing since last month has been found in Yosemite National Park. Scott Tenczar, an experienced hiker who was familiar with the area, was last seen at the Bridgeport Ranger Station in Yosemite National Park on July 25, 2018. His known plan was to backpack from Robinson Creek to Crown Lake, Matterhorn Canyon, Smedberg Lake, Seavey Pass, and Peeler Lake. His trip was due to end on the 8th or 9th of August, and when his parents still hadn’t heard from him on August 11th, they reported him missing.
National Park Service officials announced Monday that the remains of the 48-year-old, a native of San Jose, were found Saturday in a northeastern area of the park. The cause of his death remains under investigation. He wasn’t hiking in an area affected by the Ferguson Fire.
Sadly, his was the second body found in the park in less than a week. The park reported Friday that the body of park ranger John Blevins Cogdell III, who vanished just a few days earlier, had been found.
