Smith, an “experienced fell/mountain runner,” set out on an 11-mile route along four peaks in Scotland’s Glen Lyon area on Tuesday, according to a GoFundMe page set up to support Scottish Mountain Rescue.
Smith’s family appealed for help in finding the athlete after he failed to return home. Police Scotland said a man’s body was found near the Meall Garbh mountain around 11.50 a.m. local time on Thursday.
“We will always treasure his energy, spirit and love. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers,” wrote Milligan.
Notably in 2015 he helped Great Britain win a bronze medal at the World Championships.
