Woman’s Body found in search for missing Canadian Tourists
Searchers looking for the missing Canadian couple Connor Hayes and Joanna Lam have recovered a woman’s body from a West Coast beach between Haast and Knights Point, which police believe it to be the body Joanna Lam, 24.
So far they have not seen any sign of her companion Connor Hayes, 25.
The couple went missing after their rented rickety campervan was hit by a slip and plunged off the road into the Haast River nine days ago.
