Body found in New Zealand during search for British hiker
Rescue crews in New Zealand, searching for a British hiker who went missing two weeks ago, have found a body under a cliff, not yet formally identified
They said the body had not been formally identified as that of Andrew Wyatt but it was discovered at the foot of a 100-metre (330-foot) precipice that was on the 41-year-old's intended route.
Wyatt, from Cornwall, was last seen on December 15 in the Nelson Lakes National Park embarking on what was supposed to be a one-day hike to pick up supplies.
Poor weather stopped searchers from reaching the remote area until Friday, when an air force chopper dropped in four specialised alpine rescue crews who made the grim find.
Wyatt arrived in New Zealand in November and was walking the 3,000-kilometre (1,900-mile) Te Araroa Trail, which runs along the entire length of the country, when he went missing.
