PHOENIX -- A body was found Friday morning near a hiking trail in Phoenix.

The body, which has not yet been identified, was found near Trail 100 in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve.

Police received a report in late June of a missing male who was believed to have gone hiking.

On Friday morning, a group of 20 volunteers from the police and fire departments went looking for the man.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos said the medical examiner will work to identify the body.
