AN ELDERLY couple who went missing were victims of the ultimate hiking horror after it was discovered they had been shot dead near the trail.

Lee and Stella Vigil were reported missing on Friday when they failed to return from a hike, KKTV reported.


But a hunt for the septuagenarians ended tragically on Saturday when officials in Colorado Springs, Colorado found their bodies, reports said.

Police have reportedly identified everyone involved in the shooting but said officials do not expect to make any arrests, the outlet reported.

Other hikers told KRDO that they were shocked to hear the tragic news.

“I don't want my wife to come here alone. She always has to come with me from now on, if we come back," Morty Zand said.

Another hiker told the outlet that hikers have to be careful because of “sketchy people” on the trails.

"It's sad, it's upsetting, I think I've seen them on the trail before,” said Michael Hollenbeck.
