BOUNTIFUL — A hiker died Saturday after being reported missing in Holbrook Canyon, Davis County authorities said.

The man, 58, was overdue and his spouse called police at about 7:30 p.m., and the Davis County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team launched a search, Stephanie Dinsmore, sheriff’s spokesperson, said Monday.

Tracking the man by a GPS device he carried, searchers found him near the canyon trail. He was unconscious and breathing, but he died before a medical helicopter could arrive, Dinsmore said.

The rescue team brought his body down on the trail and the state medical examiner will determine the cause of death, she said. There apparently were no visible signs of injury and there was no reported suspicion of foul play, she said.
