Park spokesman Kevin Bacher said Monday the Pierce County medical examiner's office has identified the body of Michelle Trojanowski. She and 37-year-old Mark Vucich of Agoura Hills, Calif., failed to return from a camping trip on the Muir snowfield. Vucich's body was found Aug. 6.
Work continues to identify a male body found near Trojanowski. Those two bodies were recovered Friday on the Paradise Glacier, at about the 8,200-foot level of the 14,411-foot peak.
Melting snow exposed the bodies.
Two climbers also were reported missing nearby at the same time -- Sork "Eric" Yang of Springfield, Ore., and Seol Hee Jin of South Korea, both 52.
Bacher said an extensive search on Saturday failed to turn up a fourth body.
