The barking of a missing hiker's dog led searchers to the man's body.
Okanogan County Undersheriff Joe Somday says the body of 52-year-old James V. Spotts III was found Monday in the Lake Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness between Boiling and Bernice lakes.
Somday says there was no outward sign of injury or cause of death. Because the body was found just inside Chelan County, it is being sent to Wenatchee where Chelan County authorities will decide whether to conduct an autopsy.
Spotts left Sept. 11 on a week-long hike. A friend reported him overdue on Saturday and the search began with teams on foot, horseback and a helicopter.
