The body of a San Rafael man who disappeared while hiking in the Sierra Nevada has been found, a spokeswoman for Sequoia and Kings Canyon Nation Parks said.

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.
