Missing hiker Vaughn Fetzer has been found deceased in the area of Colorado's 14,345-foot Blanca Peak.

Recovery operations will take place Monday and it has been requested that all non-search and rescue members stay out of the Blanca Peak area, which is located in Colorado's Sangre de Cristo range, Alamosa Volunteer Search and Rescue said.

Rockfall risk has been an ongoing concern during its mission in the area related to Vaughn. One crew member was injured while the search was taking place when a rock dislodged and struck him in the leg.

Details about specifically where Vaughn was found were not released, nor was a suspected cause of death.

Crews had initially narrowed their search to the technical Gash Ridge area, which extends off the eastern side of Blanca Peak. It is a non-standard route that's rated somewhere between class four and class five.

It is unclear if this is ultimately where Fetzer was found. Fetzer was last heard from on Sept. 18.
