James Kim's body found in Oregon

Taken from just a few moments ago -- 

MERLIN, Oregon (CNN) -- The body of a San Francisco man who had walked into the Oregon wilderness to summon help for his stranded family was found Wednesday in a steep ravine where he had left clues for searchers.

Officials confirmed that James Kim, 35, an editor at the Web site CNET, had been found dead.

Brian Anderson, Undersheriff of Josephine County, broke down and could not finish speaking as he announced that Kim's body was found at 3:03 p.m. ET.

Searchers were attempting to remove Kim's body, and his family members have requested that their privacy be respected, officials said.

On behalf of myself and all of the staff I offer my sincerest condolences to the Kim family and may James rest in peace, he will be greatly missed amongst his friends, family, and the internet community alike. While I did not know him personally, I do remember seeing him on TechTV and reading his articles on CNET, a great person indeed.
