Steve Patterson told KPHO-TV his wife’s text read: “Hey baby I’ve lost my route. I am fine. Much water. It’s all ok.”

The message was sent at 10:02 a.m., and Patterson was reported missing that night after failing to return from her hike.

Patterson’s car was parked in the parking lot at the trailhead.

A search quickly followed, with more than 200 volunteers sweeping the area on Tuesday.

She was only found on Wednesday when a volunteer searcher came across the body about 200 meters from the popular trail.

“Kathleen Patterson has been located. Unfortunately, she was found dead by a volunteer searcher at the Spur Cross Conservation Area,” the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday.

An inquest into the death has been launched, but police say no third-party negligence is suspected.

Patterson’s family said she was an avid hiker.
