SEDONA, Arizona — Authorities say a Sedona man who went missing while hiking in the Coconino National Forest in north-central Arizona has been found dead.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn says the agency's helicopter spotted 57-year-old David Polcyn's body in a canyon area Monday morning and that it appears he was injured from a fall.

Crews are working to remove the body and D'Evelyn says the exact cause of death will be determined at a later time.

A search for Polcyn began late Saturday after Polcyn's wife reported him missing after he failed to arrive at a trailhead northeast of Camp Verde and south of Sedona.

The search continued Sunday and resumed Monday morning.
