[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

GLENDORA, Calif. » Authorities say the body of a man was found covered with mud and debris in the San Gabriel Mountains north of Glendora.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says a hiker found the dead man near a trail, just south of the Bridge to Nowhere in the Angeles National Forest on Saturday.

A sheriff’s team extricated the body Sunday afternoon.

It wasn’t immediately known how long the body had been there. Medical examiners will determine the man’s cause of death.

KCBS-TV reports investigators are trying to determine if the body is that of a hiker reported missing when a storm slammed Southern California on Tuesday and dropped a record-breaking amount of rain.
