Deming, N.M. - Authorities in southwestern New Mexico say a Texas man is dead after a 75-foot fall from a mountain in Rockhound State Park southeast of Deming.

Relatives reported Scott Allen Coleman of Houston missing on Monday night after he went for an afternoon walk and never returned.

A Deming Police Department report says family friends found Coleman and Luna County sheriff's deputies then determined he was badly injured.

Coleman stopped breathing while responders were carrying him down the mountain.

Coleman was in Deming to attend a brother's funeral.
