APACHE JUNCTION, AZ - Authorities say a body found in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix is that of a hiker missing since Monday.
Pinal County Sheriff's search and rescue crews say the body was discovered Friday near a canyon south of Siphon Draw.
They say helicopters can't land in the rugged area, so crews are hiking into the canyon to retrieve the body of 34-year-old Christopher Hensley.
He was last seen Monday afternoon when he set out for a hike at Lost Dutchman State Park.
Sheriff's officials say Hensley recently moved to Arizona from Indiana and didn't have much water with him.
The search and rescue unit deployed Monday night and a member suffered a serious leg injury Tuesday night when a 20-pound rock fell on his leg. Another member sprained an ankle.
