SAN ANTONIO - Authorities say a San Antonio man apparently fell to his death during an Internet scavenger hunt.

 

The body of James Max Chamberlain, 64, was discovered Sunday in Eisenhauer Park.

 

"He either slipped and fell down the ravine, or he was trying to walk up the little incline and slipped back," said Lt. Rosie Vasques, of the San Antonio Police Department.

 

Authorities believe Chamberlain was using a recently-purchased global positioning system to find his way.

 

His wife reported Chamberlain missing late Saturday when he didn't return home.

 

Police were able to locate Chamberlain's body in a remote area of the park by using coordinates he left behind.

 

The death is being treated as an accident. An autopsy has been ordered.
