The body of a British hiker who went missing in the Pyrenees has been found by his companion, where a bone was found two weeks ago.
Easter Dingley, 37, was walking alone in the Pyrenees mountains on the French-Spanish border when she was last seen on November 22.
LBT Global Charity, which provides emergency assistance to missing British citizens, said Daniel Colgate found his body and belongings together Monday afternoon.
A statement said: “A team of forensic experts and mountain rescue personnel were dispatched to make a list of the site and retrieve Easter.
“At this stage, an accident is presumed to be an accident, given the location and other preliminary indications. A full investigation is underway to confirm the details of the accident.”
“The family is incredibly grateful for the efforts of the police units involved and their commitment to understanding the true circumstances of Easter’s death.
“LBT Global is supporting Daniel and Easter’s mother, Rhea, because they are in line with the news.”
The body was discovered last month after a bone was found nearby, after which DNA testing confirmed that it belonged to Ms. Dingley.
Mr. Colgate and Ms. Dingley met at Oxford University and lived in Durham.
Six years ago, he decided to embark on a trip to Europe in his camper van.
