The body of a man discovered by hikers in Big Tujunga Canyon late last month has been identified as missing Turkish engineer Ertug Ergun, officials said.
Ergun, who worked in Bakersfield, was reported missing by his supervisor on June 20. His car was found two days later near the Stonyvale Picnic area.
More than 60 people spent a collective 600 hours searching for the 33-year-old on horseback, by helicopter, on foot, or off-road motorcycles, according to Sgt. Burton Brink of Montrose Search and Rescue.
