Fresno, CA (AP / CBS13) — A hiker who was declared missing while in Yosemite National Park was found dead the same day without a public update from the National Park Service.
Authorities announced the death of 41-year-old “Alice” Yu Xie on Friday.
Yosemite officials released details of the disappearance of Chinese citizens on their website and social media on January 16. Xie was found dead on the same day at the foot of a waterfall in Yosemite National Park. The cause of death was not immediately revealed.
Xie, a Chinese resident of the United States, was reported to have traveled from Mariposa County to Yosemite on January 14 and went missing the next day. The NPS said it was planning to hike to the top of Yosemite Falls.
Park Services did not immediately explain why her death announcement was delayed by nearly a week.
The woman’s family was notified. There was no indication that the communication was related to a delay in updating the search status.
