Missing hiker found dead in Connecticut's Lover's Leap park

NEW MILFORD (AP) — A missing hiker was found dead in Lover's Leap State Park in Connecticut, authorities said.

The hiker was found Sunday in Lake Lillinonah inside the park after a search by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the New Milford police and other agencies, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said in a news release.

Other members of the group the man was hiking with said they had last seen him heading down from an overlook in the park late Sunday afternoon, a department spokesperson said.

The hiker's name was not immediately released. The state medical examiner's office will determine his cause of death.
