COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado Springs police are investigating after a man fell more than 200 feet to his death near Mount Cutler.

Sgt. Jim Jeffcoat tells KRDO-TV a group of rock climbers found the man's body at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and police are investigating if the fall was an accident.

Investigators are checking vehicles at a nearby park to see if any of them belonged to the man, who was not carrying identification.
