The court heard that the terrain where Mr Jones' body was found - several weeks after he first went missing - was difficult and inhospitable for searchers.

The 'Find Arthur' campaign family and friends waged came in for praise - the coroner adding 'it's a huge regret their efforts went unrewarded'.
