LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a teenager fell to his death while hiking with other teens on Memorial Day at Red Rock Canyon.

Las Vegas police say the boy fell around midday Monday in the Calico Tanks area of the Calico Basin. Authorities say there were no witnesses to the accident because the teen had gone off on his own, but his body was found after he failed to meet up with the rest of the group.

Police Lt. Tom Monahan says a helicopter was used in the recovery effort.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office has not yet released the teen’s name.
