The body, found in the Inyo National Forest, was positively identified as that of 31-year-old Thomas Heng, spokeswoman Dana Dierkes said.
Heng was last seen around 1 p.m. Sunday while on a day hike to Mount Langley, Dierkes said. He had been hiking with others but had separated from the group.
Search-and-rescue teams from the Inyo County Sheriff's Office and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks led the search for Heng, Dierkes said.
No other information was immediately available this morning.
