A German man who went missing while hiking in the Catalina Mountains during a record-breaking heat wave on Sunday was found dead, officials said Tuesday.

Marcus Turowski, 33, was the second person in a hiking party of three German nationals who apparently succumbed to the heat while out on the trail. His fellow hiker, Stefan Guenster, 57, was found deceased Sunday on the Ventana Canyon Trail.

Sheriff's officials said a third man hiking with the group made it down the trail and received medical attention.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department announced Turowski's death after meeting with his family, who flew in to Tucson from Germany. The search for Turowski began around 5 a.m. Tuesday and searchers found his body off of the Ventana Canyon No. 98 trail at about 7 a.m.
