A missing hiker was found dead in Griffith Park two weeks after having gone missing with his dog by his side.
Oscar Alejandro Hernandez, 29, was first reported missing on March 16. He was last seen near the park’s merry-go-round hiking trails, according to the missing person’s flier.
Hernandez’s body was found March 31 with his dog, King, by his side. It seems he hadn’t left Hernandez’s side for the last two weeks and was found in an emaciated condition as a result.
An investigation is currently underway. The LAPD has told Fox News there are no immediate updates at this point. The investigation will take several weeks.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Officer performed an autopsy on April 1. The cause of death was deferred.
Sgt. Ruben Arellano, a watch commander at the station in charge of Griffith Park, said there is no reason to believe foul play was involved.
