The NPS morning report says William Autrey was found the foot of an 80 foot cliff in the Bromide Hill area of Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Oklahoma.
The morning report says:
A hiker was killed in an accident during the evening of May 25th. Just before midnight on the 25th, the park received notice that William Autrey, of Shawnee, Oklahoma, was overdue from a hike in the Bromide Hill area. Three male friends had been hiking on the Bromide trail system and became separated at approximately 9:30 p.m. A search was begun and AutreyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s body was found at the base of an 80-foot cliff along Rock Creek, about an eighth of a mile from the point where heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d last been seen by his friends. An investigation is being conducted. Supervisory ranger Albert Faria was the incident commander and ranger Luis Krug is the lead investigator.
