RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — A 19-year-old Indianapolis man has died after reportedly falling from rocks while climbing with a friend in southern Wyoming.

The Rawlins Daily Times reports that Carbon County Coroner Paul Zamora identified the victim as Justin Siler, of Indianapolis.

Zamora says the incident occurred about 8 p.m. Sunday at the French Creek Campground about 18 miles northeast of Riverside.

He says Siler recently has been living in the Saratoga area while working a seasonal job.

Sheriff Archie Roybal declined to release information as to the direct cause of the death, but he said there was no evidence of foul play.
