The body of a hiker was found in a park in Los Angeles on Thursday night alongside his dog, which was still alive.

Oscar Alejandro Hernandez, 29, was reported missing two weeks ago. His body was found in a remote area of Griffith Park, near where his family said he had previously been last seen, NBC Los Angeles reported.

Next to the body, authorities found Hernandez's dog, King.

King was still alive but emaciated, according to NBC Los Angeles. Hernandez’s cousin told the station he believes the dog did not leave his owner's side for two weeks.

The Los Angeles Fire Department, the Los Angeles Police Department and park rangers responded Thursday night, NBC Los Angeles reported.

Neither of the agencies immediately responded to NBC News' requests for comment Saturday morning.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has not released any information.
