Searchers looking for British tramper Andrew Wyatt have recovered a body in Nelson Lakes National Park, believed to be the missing tramper.
The body is yet to be formally identified, police said.
The body was found at the foot of a 100 metre precipice below the Lake Constance Bluff, which was the 41-year-old’s intended route. He had been missing for 12 days.
Mr Wyatt, from Cornwall, arrived in New Zealand on November 21 and was last seen on December 15 at Blue Lake Hut.
Mr Wyatt had intended to walk the 3,000-kilometre (1,900-mile) Te Araroa Trail, yet another tourist deathtrap, which runs along the entire length of the New Zealand, when he went missing.
