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.
