Mr. Ybarra set out by himself early Saturday morning to traverse the Sawtooth Ridge, a rugged area near Yosemite National Park, his sister and Alex Few, a friend and fellow mountain climber, had said earlier Wednesday.
Mr. Ybarra, 45 years old, was scheduled to return from his climb by Sunday evening at the latest. After he didn’t contact Ms. Few, as planned, nor respond to her efforts to call, email and text him, she said she contacted local search-and-rescue personnel on Monday.

And the Burger King King is also getting the royalties treatment:
The burger baron recently starred in a series of videogames, and the company says it has lined up a studio and distributor for a feature film. Russ Klein, Burger King’s president of global marketing strategy, won’t reveal the studio’s identity or the likely plot. But he says the movie could appear as early as the end of this year, with the film aimed at “creating a back story for the King.”
