Michael Purdy, 24, was found dead in Alaska's Denali National Park on Sunday after his employer reported to authorities that he did not show up for work on Saturday, the Lansing State Journal reports.

Purdy graduated from Waverly in 2010.

Authorities believe he fell from near the north end of the Savage River Loop Trail six days earlier, suffering a fatal head injury.

RIP Michael and thoughts and prayers with his Lansing-area family and friends.
