(Reuters) - Search crews on Sunday were bringing the body of ultra-marathon runner Micah True out from the mountainous New Mexico wilderness where he was found dead after setting off on a 12-mile run, officials said. The process of recovering his body, which was discovered on Saturday, was slow and grueling due to the terrain in the Gila National Forest, said Tom Bemis, incident commander with the New Mexico State Police.

His body was found with no obvious signs of injury, police said. Read the full story from Reuters
