ESTES PARK - Rocky Mountain National Park officials say two people out snowshoeing near Bear Lake came upon a body that is believed be that of a missing Texas man.

Park officials said Tuesday the body was found against a tree in a thick timbered area, about 100 feet off from a summer hiking trail.

Although the Larimer County Coroner's office has yet to positively identify the body, officials believe it belongs to Troy Green, 39, from San Antonio, Texas.

Crews have been searching for Green since Friday. He was in the area to attend a conference in Denver.

His wife notified Denver police when she didn't hear from him Thursday. Rocky Mountain National Park rangers found his vehicle at the park's Bear Lake parking lot early Friday.
