IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Officials believe remains found in Colorado are those of a Iowa City High graduate James Nelson.

Nelson had been missing since October of 2010. He had gone on a five-day hiking trip and never returned.

The sheriff's office says a notebook found at the campsite indicates that Nelson had been suffering from altitude sickness.

The exact cause of death has not been released.
