A 20-year-old man was found dead at Signal Point this morning about 7:30 a.m., according to Signal Mountain Fire Chief Eric Mitchell.

Emergency crews are working to retrieve the body of Tyler Pelts, of Memphis, who fell about 200 feet from Signal Point Park on Signal Mountain last night, authorities said.  

The man was reported missing last night, and located this morning through his phone's cell signal. He had been living in the Chattanooga area with his brother.

"There is no indication that it was anything else than an accident," Mitchell said.

Another 20-year-old man was found dead at Signal Point three months ago.
