NM recovery of runner Micah True's body under waySearchers working to recover body of renowned runner Micah True from NM wilderness area
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) ' Search crews are working to recover the body of renowned long-distance runner Micah True from a remote area of southern New Mexico.
Sunday's efforts in the rugged Gila Wilderness come after a searcher found True's body Saturday evening. He disappeared Tuesday after leaving a lodge for a 12-mile run, and a search was launched the next day when his friends reported the 58-year-old hadn't returned.
New Mexico state police spokesman Lt. Robert McDonald says more than 60 people were involved in Saturday's search.
Incident Commander Tom Bemis told the Las Cruces Sun-News late Saturday that one of True's friends on a search team found him just a mile southeast of the Gila Cliff Dwellings, about five miles from where he was last seen heading out for a run.
