PAGE, Ariz. - A base jumper killed in a fall in the U.S. near the Grand Canyon has been identified as a 41-year-old Canadian physician.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office says the body of Dr. David Stather of Calgary, Alberta, was recovered Saturday after two fellow jumpers reported him missing late Friday.

The Sheriff's Office says Stather was wearing a wing suit and his body was found on a canyon ledge.

Detective Pat Barr says the jumpers who reported him missing had been waiting for him at the bottom.
