BORREGO SPRINGS, Calif. -- A body found in a deep mud hole may be that of a hiker who vanished on Easter in the Southern California badlands.

A mine rescue team from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department may be called in Tuesday to recover the body.

Twenty-five-year-old Guillermo Pino was exploring mud caves in the Anzo-Borrego Desert State Park in eastern San Diego County when he vanished. He had no shoes, water or cellphone.

Hundreds of volunteers searched for days without finding him. However, Pino's family kept searching. The area is pitted with hundreds of caves.
