A 29-year-old hiker who was climbing barefoot died last week after he slipped and fell more than 100 feet to his death in an Arizona canyon, officials say. 

The body of Jordan Brashears, of Washington, was found on Friday in Boynton Canyon near Sedona, one day after his hiking companions lost sight of him.

Two friends he was hiking with reported him missing after he went ahead of them and they lost sight of him on Thursday October 8.

The three hikers had planned to explore ancient ruins in the canyon and were exploring half a mile from the Enchantment Resort on the canyon’s east wall.

Brashears was hiking with two companions on Thursday when he disappeared. Deputies believe he hiked around the corner from the last place he was seen and tried to climb another ledge or two before he fell from the edge more than 100 feet into the canyon. His body was found in the area below the bottom edge of this photo
