KINGS CANYON NA­TIONAL PARK — Author­i­ties say the body of a South­ern Cal­i­for­nia man who dis­ap­peared nine months ago while hik­ing in the Sierra has been found.

Seventy-four-year-old Robert Woodie was re­ported miss­ing af­ter he didn’t re­turn from a four-day solo back­pack­ing trip in Kings Canyon Na­tional Park last Oc­to­ber.

Around that time, a cold spell hit the moun­tains, with strong winds, tem­per­a­tures be­low freez­ing at night and snow at higher el­e­va­tions.
