Park Superintendent Valerie Naylor says 48-year-old Dan Olszewski of Midlothian, Va., was an avid and well-prepared hiker.

Olszewski had come to the park for a day hike and was reported missing when he did not report to work. His body was found in the park's south unit after a three day, multi-agency search.

An autopsy was performed to determine the cause of death.

Olszewski had been in North Dakota working.
