LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say a California man was the hiker found dead after getting lost on trails in a 1,100-acre regional park in Lake Havasu City. Mohave County Sheriff’s officials say 31-year-old Kyle Matthew Movius, of Irvine, became separated from a group of three other out-of-town hikers. His body was located Saturday afternoon.

Authorities say the four hikers called 911 around 2:30 p.m. Friday to say they were lost, out of water and showing signs of heat exhaustion in 104-degree conditions. Besides Movius, the other hikers were a 61-year-old man and two women, ages 63 and 27. City rescue crews treated the surviving hikers for dehydration.
