Oscar Alejandro Hernandez, 29, had been missing since March 16, NBC Los Angeles reported Saturday.

A firefighter said the area where Hernandez was found on Thursday was a good hike up from the park’s merry-go-round. Fliers posted by Hernandez’s family indicated he was last seen near the merry-go-round hiking trails.

When rescuers found Hernandez’s body, his dog, King, was right next to him. They said the dog was tired and hungry, but alive.

Hernandez’s cousin told NBC Los Angeles the loyal dog never left his owner’s side.
