TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Pima County authorities say hikers have found a decomposed body near a trail on Mount Lemmon.

Sheriff's officials say there's no evidence of foul play and the death doesn't appear to be suspicious.

They say the cause of death and positive identification is pending the completion of a forensic examination.

Sheriff's spokesman Tracy Suitt says hikers reported the discovery of the body about 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The body was found about a quarter mile from the picnic area near Marshall Gulch.
