On Thursday, Two Bear Air, a local helicopter rescue service, joined the search for Fuselier as the weather improved, officials said. A United States Forest Service helicopter, along with more than 50 searchers and a dog team rounded out the rescuers.

"The park and Fuselier’s family would like to thank visitors for calls to the tip line that directly contributed to finding Fuselier’s remains," park officials added. "Credible tips from hikers who had contact with Fuselier helped narrow the search area."

Glacier National Park has seen several other deadly incidents this year. A Kansas woman died in May after falling off a rocky overhang into Avalanche Creek at the national park and being swept into a gorge, and three people died in the park in one week last July.

The park, which spans over 1,500 square miles and includes 175 mountains, has glaciers, lakes and valleys, as well as over 745 miles of trails.
