Crews are working to recover the body of a well-known long-distance runner who was found dead in a remote part of New Mexico.

A friend found Micah True's body Saturday night in the rugged Gila Wilderness, ending a search that began Tuesday after he failed to return from a 12-mile run.

His body was found near the Gila cliff dwellings, about 5 miles from where he was last seen starting on his run.
