RESERVE, N.M. (AP) — A California man whose father died after the son went missing while hiking in western New Mexico has himself died.

Catron (CAT'-rihn) County Under Sheriff Ian Fletcher says hunters found 43-year-old Stephen Lockhart of Costa Mesa on Sunday.

Fletcher says Lockhart was incoherent and had a head wound, possibly from a fall. He died before responders reached the remote site several hours later.

Cause of death will be determined by the state Office of the Medical Investigator.

Lockhart's father, 70-year-old Ray Lockhart of Huntington Beach, Calif., collapsed and died Oct. 23 while searchers were looking for his son.
