TUCSON, AZ — A missing man's body was found in the western part of Saguaro National Park Wednesday, February 24, 2021 according to officials. A news release from the Pima County Sheriff's Department said deputies received information from the U.S. National Park Service that a man had been found in the park at 11:39 a.m. According to the department, search and rescue deputies responded to the area and were able to identify the dead man as 78-year-old William Trotter.
Trotter had been reported missing on February 9, 2021 by friends after he had not been seen for days.
