LOS ANGELES - Hikers have found the remains of missing 52-year-old Sreenivas 'Sree' Mokkapat on Mount Baldy.
The peak was blanketed in snow and overnight temperatures hovered near freezing the week he went missing.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue Volunteers along with search and rescue members from San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, Tulare, Fresno, San Mateo and Kern Counties searched for Mokkapti daily.
Helicopters from San Bernardino and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Departments also assisted in the search efforts.
Rescue crews scoured the mountain for days, but the effort was suspended after a searcher fell to his death.
The remains were discovered June 19th at an elevation of about 7,800 feet on Mt. Baldy's northwest side.
The medical examiner positively identified the remains to be Mokkapati on June 27.
