Body of Springfield Hiker Found

TACOMA, Wash. — Search and Rescue crews have recovered the body of a Springfield man who disappeared on Mt. Rainier last January.

The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the body of 54- year-old Eunsork “Eric” Yang.  Yang vanished in fierce winter storms earlier this year, along with three others. The melting snows exposed the bodies.

The medical examiner’s office says all four died from hypothermia.
