APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. -- Authorities said a body has been found in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix, but it's not immediately known if it's that of a hiker missing since Monday.

Search and rescue crews said the body was discovered Friday near a canyon south of Siphon Draw.

Crews have been looking for 34-year-old Christopher Hensley, who was last seen Monday afternoon when he set out for a hike at Lost Dutchman State Park.

Pinal County Sheriff's officials said Hensley recently moved to Arizona and didn't have much water with him.

Sheriff's officials said its search and rescue unit deployed Monday night and that a member suffered a serious leg injury Tuesday night when a 20-pound rock fell on his leg. Another member sprained an ankle.
