Police have confirmed a body found in the Malaysian jungle is that of missing London backpacker Gareth Huntley, the Foreign Office said.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: "Malaysian police have now confirmed that the body found on Tioman Island is Gareth Huntley."The Foreign Office will remain in close contact with the Malaysian authorities and our staff continue to support Gareth's family at this tragic time."
Mr Huntley, 34, disappeared on May 27 when he went on a trek to a waterfall on Tioman Island, off the south-eastern coast of the country's mainland.
A body feared to be that of Mr Huntley was found on Wednesday, close to where he was living. His mother, Janet Southwell, had given blood to hospital staff so they could carry out a DNA comparison.
