ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) — Officials have released the name of a man whose body was found on Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson says a climber was on the Keyhole Route of the 14,259-foot peak when he and his group saw the body 18-year-old Nicholas L. Hellbusch, of Lenexa, Kansas, below The Ledges area Friday morning.

Park rangers reached the body about three hours later and flew it by helicopter to a nearby meadow. Investigators have not said how Hellbusch died.
