PHOENIX — The search for an out-town hiker in the mountains west of Phoenix ended Thursday when the body of Cheryl Case was found.
Case, 68, who was visiting the Valley, went hiking in the White Tank Mountains on Monday and hadn’t been heard from since. A Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said a friend reported Case missing after she didn’t come back from her hike. Her car was parked at the trailhead.
Foul play is not suspected.
