The body of Engineering graduate student and 2014 College and Wharton graduate Qi He was found in Washington on Sunday, July 2, nearly a month after he went missing on June 5.

He was glissading, or using an ice ax to control his slide, down Asgard Pass, a popular alpine hiking area near Seattle, Wash. when he apparently lost control and slid over the edge of a rock outcropping into a hole carved in the snow by a waterfall.

Local NBC station King5 reported that He's body was found under snowpack near Colchuck Lake in the Enchantment Wilderness by Chelan County Mountain Rescue.

The search had initially been called off in early June due to dangerous conditions for rescuers, and the team began searching again Saturday morning, one day before He was found.

He was a Chinese citizen and a graduate student in the Master of Computer Information Technology Program at Penn.
