Virginia hiker Jennifer Coleman found dead in Glacier National Park

A Virginia hiker who was reported missing for over four days in Montana’s Glacier National Park was found dead Sunday afternoon, according to authorities.

Jennifer Coleman, a 34-year-old woman from Richmond, Virginia, went on a solo hike in the national park and never returned, according to the National Park Service. The search began on Wednesday afternoon when park officials found her vehicle in the Logan Pass parking lot, the highest elevation a car can reach in the park at 6,646-feet. Sheriff deputies also located Coleman’s belongings at her campsite at the West Glacier KOA campground.

Since then, about 50 rescue workers were searching for Coleman before she was found dead in a steep and rocky area near the Continental Divide. Officials said they are investigating the cause of death. High winds prevented them from recovering her body.
