Missing Russian Found Dead In Wyoming

Updated: Friday, August 22 2014, 10:03 PM CDT
MOOSE, WY (AP) -- A Russian student who went missing in Grand Teton National Park has been found dead.

The body of 20-year-old Aleksandr "Sasha" Sagiev was found in the park Friday. The student from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, was reported missing Monday after going for a hike.

After a three-day search, Sagiev's body was discovered below a steep traverse, known as Cache Couloir, in Glacier Gulch.

Sagiev was a seasonal employee at a pizza shop in the area. About 60 searchers had been looking for him since he was last seen at work Sunday.

Authorities say that when Sagiev was found, he was wearing the metallic blue "Sochi" jacket that he was last seen wearing.

There's no immediate word on the cause of death.
