A Colorado couple is still coming to grips today, with the death of their son, who had not been seen, since leaving for a hike Saturday.

Tyler Mayle, 22, was found dead -- late Wednesday night -- following a 2-day search of 'Y" Mountain.

Lori and Gary Mayle had spent the day at the search headquarters and were there when the sad word arrived.

Police say a tip -- from a man who had been spotting deer -- helped lead them to the BYU student's remains, at the bottom of a 65-foot cliff.

A helicopter was used to retrieve the body from the rugged area.
