Body of missing Bay Area woman found on rugged Mount Tamalpais


MILL VALLEY, California — Searchers have found the body of a Northern California woman who's been missing since early April on Mount Tamalpais.

Magdalena Glinkowski was last seen March 30 in a parking lot to the popular hiking spot north of San Francisco.

The search for the 33-year-old Menlo Park woman was suspended last week, but Marin County Sheriff's officials said a tip from a trail runner renewed the search.

Sheriff's Lt. Doug Pittman said the tipster led searchers to a steep, rugged canyon Saturday morning.

Pittman said investigators were looking into the cause of death, but evidence indicates she may have fallen.

The tipster, Ryan Hutnick of Larkspur, told the Marin Independent Journal ( ) he remembered seeing Glinkowski because it was rare to cross paths with anybody on those trails.
