Missing Mt Whitney hiker found dead after five-day search

June 16, 2014

The body of a Mt. Whitney hiker missing since June 14 was found Thursday in a steep chute above Mirror Lake, only about a mile from where the man was supposed to meet his friends on June 14 after he and two friends had climbed Whitney for the fifth time.

Early in the evening of June 19, during an aerial reconnaissance mission above Mirror Lake west of Outpost Camp, search crews located what is believed to be the remains of missing hiker John Likely, 60, Dumont, New Jersey, in an extremely steep chute.
