Body found on Mount Rainier was missing camper

TACOMA -- A body found Monday on Mount Rainier has been identified as one of four people who went missing in January storms.
The Pierce County Medical Examiner's Office identified the body Wednesday as Mark Vucich of Agoura Hills, Calif. An investigator said Thursday the cause of death is pending.
Melting snow exposed the body at the 8,000-foot elevation, on the Muir snowfield, within sight of the trail between Camp Muir and the Paradise ranger station.
Vucich, 37, and Michelle Trojanowski, 30, of Atlanta, failed to return from a camping trip on the Muir snowfield.
Two climbers also were reported missing at the same time -- Sork "Eric" Yang of Springfield, Ore., and Seol Hee Jin of South Korea, both 52.
Rangers continue to watch for bodies as snow melts.
