Foot found floating in Yellowstone hot spring belonged to 70-year-old L.A. man
A Los Angeles man found in Yellowstone National Park with a body attached in a hot spring was a 70-year-old man, the park service confirmed Friday.
The U.S. Park Service said the body found in the hot spring near Grand Prismatic Spring was that of Henry Lee Pilsk of Los Angeles.
The body, which weighed about 40 pounds, was placed in a freezer bag, the Park Service said.
The man was discovered near the hot spring on May 27 by two employees of the National Park Service, the park service said in a statement.
“We have assisted law enforcement with their efforts to find the remains, but it is not yet clear whether the remains are those of Henry Lee Pilsk of Los Angeles,” the Park Service said in a statement Friday.
Anyone with information about the man who was reported missing should contact the National Park Service at (406) 524-1234. You can call the park at any time.
“Grand Prismatic” is a national park and recreation site in Yellowstone National Park, and the park service said it’s a popular destination.
The hot spring is open from 8 a.m. to sunset daily except holidays.
