Searchers have recovered the body of a hiker who died on a mountain in Gros Morne National Park.
The body of Stephen Latte, 54, of Ottawa, was spotted by helicopter on Monday about halfway down Gros Morne Mountain, but ground crews were unable to reach it due to the steep slope.
An attempt to retrieve the body with the helicopter was made Tuesday, but park warden Peter Deering said the weather closed in quickly and the recovery effort was called off until conditions improve.
The weather cleared on Wednesday morning, allowing searchers to reach the area.
RCMP Sgt. Paul Collins said the body was taken to a hospital in Corner Brook for an autopsy.
Latte was reported missing Sunday evening
