Nude Utah hiker faces indecent-exposure charge

SEDONA, Ariz. — Authorities in Arizona say they're looking for people who encountered a nude hiker from Utah.

The 61-year-old man is accused of telling women that he sheds clothes because he's "getting close to nature."

Yavapai County sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn says deputies recently were called to a trail in Sedona by two women who had been confronted by John Mosley. He offered to take pictures of the women.

Deputies eventually found the St. George man after other people reported that he was hiding. He was arrested on indecent-exposure charges and released. Mosley could not be reached for comment in St. George.
