Searchers in southern Utah have found the body of a hiker who they say fell to his death from a cliff ledge in Snow Canyon State Park.

KSTU-TV Fox 13 reports that searchers in a helicopter found the body just after 9 a.m. Monday.

The man fell between 80 and 100 feet on Sunday while hiking the Island in the Sky trail.

The search began after a call for help about 6 p.m., and was halted late Sunday because of cold and dangerous conditions.

Washington County sheriff's officials say the dead hiker was one of three men in a group hiking Sunday in the park north of Santa Clara.

Sheriff-elect Cory Pulsipher says the other two hikers were found safely.
