— A 51-year-old Kinnelon man was found dead in a heavily wooded area of Apshawa Preserve last Saturday, according to West Milford Police.

Police responded to the area Saturday after being notified that the hiker had not returned. Police located the car, which belonged to the hiker, Bjoern A. Waalberg, in the preserve parking area.
