Crews have retrieved the body of a missing hiker Henry "Dick" DeRusha in the Angeles National Forest on Tuesday.

The body of the 76-year-old was found on Monday between Switzer Falls campground and Bear Canyon Junction. Crews spotted his body in a remote area of the forest, but because of darkness and the rugged terrain they were unable to recover it.

DeRusha was a community activist and experienced hiker. His son reported him missing Monday morning, after failing to return from a hike he began on Friday.
