TACOMA — The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office on Friday identified the three bodies recently found on Mount Rainier — one was Intel Corp. Vice President Uday Marty, 40.

The other two were identified as Mark Mahaney, 26, and John Mullally, 40.

The three bodies were recently spotted on Mount Rainier, park officials said, not far from where six missing climbers were thought to have perished earlier this year.

According to a spokesperson for the Mount Rainier National Park, the bodies were discovered during recent training flights. They were spotted below Willis Wall at the top of the Carbon Glacier.

Two guides and four climbers were lost in the area in May, attempting to summit the mountain. The group was very experienced, and consisted of climbers from across the country.

“Intel is greatly saddened to confirm that Intel Vice President Uday Marty is among the six mountain climbers missing and presumed dead following a fall on Mount Rainier,” the company said in a statement in May. “We are providing support in this difficult time to Uday’s wife and other members of his family.”

The statement added that Marty “was an accomplished engineer and manager and was widely respected throughout the company.”

Marty, managing director of the company’s business in Singapore, oversaw Intel’s operations in Southeast Asia.

Earlier, the two guides feared dead after a climb on Mount Rainier were identified by their organization, Alpine Ascents, as Eitan Green and Matthew Hegeman.
