QUITO, Ecuador (AP) - The body of the fourth and final miner was found after the miners went missing following a cave-in at a gold mine in southern Ecuador.

Last Friday the cave's tunnel collapsed.  By Saturday, two of the miners corpses were found.

Many had expressed hope the other two would be found alive, but late Wednesday evening they were found dead.

This comes after the 33 miners in Copiapo, Chile were all rescued last week.
