Police looking for a British woman missing in New Zealand have said they have found her body.
Stephanie Simpson, 32, from Essex, is thought to have gone on a hike last weekend in Mount Aspiring National Park in the country’s South Island.
Searchers made the discovery at about 13:40 New Zealand time (00:40 GMT) on Friday in the Pyke Creek area, New Zealand Police said.
They had earlier found items they believed had belonged to her.
Ms Simpson, from the Basildon area, was reported missing on Monday, when a search began.
According to her Facebook account, she had been living in the Wanaka area since November and was working as a landscaper.
A thermal-imaging drone, dog teams, helicopter and search teams failed to find any sign of her on Thursday and police in New Zealand had said the search was difficult due to the size and terrain of the area.
