Searchers believe they have found the body of Terry Pann, a 60-year-old hiker from Nathrop that has been missing for several days after going on a hike near the Three Apostles in Colorado.

Pann had been hiking alone between July 22 and July 25 at the time of his disappearance. A multi-agency team had been searching for him since, hindered frequently by inclement weather. Better weather conditions on Wednesday allowed for a more intensive search, during which a body was found.

The Three Apostles are a group of thirteeners near Huron Peak. The group consists of Ice Mountain (13,961 feet), North Apostle (13,860 feet), and West Apostle (13,568 feet). The body was found near West Apostle Peak.

The coroner said by all appearances (because of the bad weather) it appears Terry slipped and fell and died of his injuries. Confirmation will follow after an official autopsy. Terry was my neighbor here at Chateau Chaparral in Nathrop... one of the nicest, kindest, hard working men I've ever known. Always considerate, never belligerent always a hello. VERY, VERY SAD he died this way!


Maybe he slipped on a rock or loose gravel...
