The hiker found dead in central Utah has been identified as David Ross Goodrich, 52, of Kansas City, Mo.
The Wayne County Sheriff's Office identified him on Thursday.
On Tuesday, Goodrich was in Horseshoe Canyon, an extension of Canyonlands National Park, when a group of hikers came upon him at about 1 p.m., according to a county press release. He asked them for food and water, which they gave him. He also asked them to take care of his dog, which was in his car at the trailhead.
