A missing British backpacker has been found dead after she disappeared while out hiking in New Zealand.
Stephanie Simpson, 32, was last seen by fellow hikers in Mount Aspiring National Park on the South Island on Saturday.
The alarm was raised when Miss Simpson, from Essex, failed to turn up at her landscaping job in the town of Wanaka on Monday, 45 miles from the park.
It comes after search teams found her backpack and hiking boots earlier in the day, helping to restrict the search area.
It was not immediately clear how she died and her death has been referred to the coroner.
Sergeant Mark Kirkwood said that her family were grieving and had asked for privacy.
