The body of a man that had gone missing in Big Bend Ranch State Park was found over the weekend.

Cliff Kocher's body was discovered on Saturday afternoon around 4:30 p.m. by two of his friends.

He was taken to El Paso for an autopsy the next day which showed no signs of foul play.

Kocher, who was a well-known hiker, had gone to the park about a week and a half ago.

When his rental car wasn't returned on time, officials and volunteers started searching for him.
