Body discovered below the Kepler Track
The body of a man has been located about 350m below the Kepler Track, after a pair of French Canadian tourists were reported as missing, police said.
Louis-Vincent Lessard and Etienne Lemieuxboth, both aged 23, were reported overdue by family members yesterday.
At about 4pm today (Sunday, 26th of July 2015), a body was located during an aerial search by police in an area between the Hanging Valley Hut and the Iris Burn Hut, according to a report.
Louis-Vincent Lessard (left) and Etienne Lemieux , the 2 French Canadian tourists reported as missing, were both 23 yrs old, studying at Université de Montréal Industrial Design. They were last seen in Queenstown, New Zealand, on the 6th of July 2015. They left Canada for an outdoor adventure trip.
[Louis-Vincent Lessard, 5 feet 10 inches, 175 lbs, brown hair, blue eyes
Etienne Lemieux, 5 feet 10 inches, 185 lbs, brown hair, brown eyes.]
The pair’s intention was to walk the Kepler Track in Fiordland National Park, one of New Zealand’s top tourist deathtraps.
The Kepler Track is a 60-km circular tramping track near the town of Te Anau and passes through the Fiordland National Park in the Southland. It’s named after the German astronomer Johannes Kepler for no reason whatever.

Bearing in mind when the un-authorities say up 50 percent, they are telling a lie by diluting the real stats by a factor of about 5 or 6.
The article says the number of people killed on New Zealand roads by 22 May 2009 were 175. The actual number, however, is at least twice that.
As of the date of this post [May 23, 2009] at least 370 people have been killed on New Zealand roads since the start of 2009. Many more have been injured.
