Missing American NRI tourist found dead in Mexico

Hari Simran Singh Khalsa, 35, who was reported missing earlier in the week in Morelos, Mexico, was found dead in a wooded area of the mountains that surrounds the town. Khalsa and his wife went to Tepoztlan after Christmas for a yoga retreat. Some days later he decided to take a hike in the mountains from where he sent his wife several photos and texts, including one in which he spoke of being 'half lost'. A search was arranged as soon as authorities were notified that Khalsa was missing, and the town also hired a private company equipped with helicopters and infrared cameras. In the early hours of December the search was suspended for a few hours as a member of the rescue team had an accident and almost fell into a ravine. The search resumed later with a brigade of 180 people from Morelos, Red Cross rescue workers from the Federal District of Mexico City, and two helicopters. Khalsa's body was discovered on Friday in the woods on the mountains. The cause of death is yet to be determined.
