Searchers have found the body of renowned long-distance runner Micah True, who vanished four days ago after going for a run near New Mexico's Gila National Forest.

New Mexico State Police Lt. Robert McDonald says True's body was found Saturday in a remote area of the Gila Wilderness.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/Ham6Td ) the cause of death is still unknown but there were no obvious signs of trauma. A medical examiner was sent to examine the body.

Authorities say the 58-year-old True, who lived in Colorado, went for a run Tuesday morning and didn't return. A search began the next day.

True is an accomplished extreme-distance ultrarunner — taking on distances of 50 miles or more — who was featured in the bestselling book "Born to Run."
