The body of an American mountain climber found dead in a remote part of southwest China has been identified as Jonathan "Jonny" Copp of Boulder, Colo.
Copp's relatives say the 35-year-old filmmaker was found Saturday on Mount Gongga, Li Zhixin. He appears to have died in an avalanche. The identification has not been confirmed by Chinese authorities.
Two other American climbers remain missing -- Micah Dash, 32, of Boulder and Wade Johnson, 24, of Arden Hills, Minn.
The three men were last heard from May 20 at the base camp of Mount Edgar, which is 7,556 meters above sea level.
They were scheduled to fly Tuesday out of Chengdu, Sichuan's capital, but missed the flight.
Copp family spokesman Robb Shurr says the search for the other two climbers continues.
Gongga, Tibetan for "highest snowcapped mountain," attracts both tourists and mountaineers. It is 24,790 feet (7,556 meters) above sea level, according to Xinhua.
Johnson was working for Boulder-based Sender Films, which makes climbing and outdoor adventure films.
