RENO, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say they have recovered the body of a missing University of Nevada, Reno student in Yosemite National Park.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported Friday that park rangers confirmed a body found earlier this week is that of 24-year-old graduate student Matthew Baldwin.

Park spokeswoman Ashley Mayer says Baldwin's car was discovered Sunday near the Tamarac Flat Campgrounds and his body was roughly 5 miles away near the El Capitan Gully.

The body has been turned over to the Mariposa County Sheriff's Office for an autopsy to determine cause of death.

UNR police say Baldwin was last seen Aug. 25.

Family and friends reported him missing after not hearing from him.
