Stanford university junior dies in fall while hiking in Spain

Mischa Nee, 20, died Friday while hiking in Spain with fellow Stanford students. 

A 20-year-old Stanford University junior has died in Spain, apparently falling while on a hike with other Stanford undergraduates studying in Europe, the vice provost of student affairs posted on the university's website Saturday.

Mischa Nee was hiking with other Stanford students near Mallorca, Spain Friday afternoon, in an area described to Stanford's Susie Brubaker-Cole as "difficult, rocky terrain." His fellow hikers lost sight of 
Nee during the hike, and he disappeared. Mallorca authorities started searching the area late Friday and resumed Saturday, when Nee's body was discovered.

Nee was part of a group of Stanford undergrads studying in Europe over winter quarter visiting Mallorca for a short visit, Brubaker-Cole said. He was a computer science major at Stanford and was planning a minor in art history or studio art, she added.
