Hiker Found Dead

Updated: Thursday, January 17 2013, 03:38 PM EST

A death along the Appalachian Trail is under investigation.

Rangers say a 50-year-old man was found dead at the Tricorner Knob Shelter in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Thursday morning. The hiker was reported missing Monday, when a friend said he failed to show up at Davenport Gap.

Authorities say the death does not appear to be suspicious. Investigators have not released the man's name as of yet.
