From the National Park Service:

The body of Ninos Yacoub, 27, one of three hikers swept over Vernal Fall last July, was found in the Merced River approximately 100 yards below the Vernal Fall footbridge last Tuesday. Yacoub has been missing since July 19th, when he, Hormiz David, 22, and Ramina Badal, 21, were seen being swept over the 317-foot-high waterfall.  David’s body was found on August 5th approximately 240 feet below the waterfall. Another body was found in the same general area as Yacoub’s last Saturday. Positive identification has not been made, but is expected within the next several days. The park will issue a news release when the body is positively identified.
