Tom Billings, described as a "seasoned traveller and avid hiker", was reported missing after he failed to return to his Vancouver accommodation for several days. He was last seen on November 25.

Toronto mayor Rob Ford may have offered $5,000 (£2,860) and a car to men trying to sell a video that allegedly shows him smoking crack cocaine, police documents published in Canada's National Post show.
Police notes on a recorded phone conversation between two suspected gang members reportedly showed that Mr Ford was aware of the video's existence and wanted to buy it.
The men rejected the mayor's apparent offer and planned on asking for $150,000 (£85,850), according to a police document released by an Ontario Superior court judge.
Mr Ford, who admitted that he smoked crack in a "drunken stupor" around a year ago, has denied the claims.
Toronto's scandal-hit mayor Rob Ford has suggested that his past misdemeanours may be due to the fact that he "hung around with the wrong company".
"Maybe I'm too nice," Ford says when asked about the company he keeps. He adds "maybe I did hang around with the wrong company."
In an interview with Canadian broadcaster CP24, he admitted again to having taken crack "maybe once" and to experimenting with party drugs in his youth:
"I don't do crack. I've done it maybe once," Ford says.
Ford says he may have experimented with party drugs when he was younger.
Toronto's beleaguered mayor Rob Ford has told NBC's Today show: "They are not going to find another Rob Ford".
Ford, who eventually admitted smoking crack cocaine after a video surfaced of him doing it, told co-anchor Matt Lauer: "I can't even barely remember it. I was very, very inebriated".
Asked why he initially denied the allegations, Ford said he was asked by reporters, "'Do I use crack cocaine?' No, I don't use crack cocaine. No. Have I tried crack cocaine? Yes, I've tried crack cocaine".
He added: "I've embarrassed, not just myself, my family, my friends, my supporters, the whole city. I take full responsibility for that".
Ford, who faces an electoral race next year, said he "absolutely" still wants to be Toronto mayor, stating: "October 27 - let the people decide".
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has hit another setback after he pushed over a woman councillor during a heated council meeting.
He charged around the chamber after arguing with members of the public, before the speaker asked security to clear the chamber and a recess was called. Members of the public then chanted "Shame! Shame!" at the mayor.
The Mayor admits he has made mistakes, but says he remains ambitious, adding: "Have I had my outbursts in the past? Absolutely. But you know what, I'm only human. I've made mistakes. I've apologised."And he still covets the job.
"Yes, one day I do want to run for prime minister," he said.
Video shows Ford moving around the gallery and at one point he knocks over a woman councillor before picking her back up.
A reporter for the Toronto Sun has tweeted that councillors voted 39 to just three in favour of reducing Mayor Rob Ford's powers.
Ford himself was one of the three to vote against the measure.
