Body of British hiker Esther Dingley found by partner in Pyrenees

The body of the British hiker Esther Dingley who went missing in the Pyrenees has been found by her partner close to where a bone was discovered two weeks ago.

The LBT Global charity said her body and equipment were found together by Daniel Colegate on Monday afternoon.

A statement added: “A team of forensic specialists along with mountain rescue personnel were dispatched to the site in order to catalogue the scene and recover Esther.

“At this stage an accident is the most likely hypothesis, given the location and other early indications. A full investigation is under way to confirm the details surrounding this tragedy.

“The family remain incredibly grateful for the efforts of the police units involved and their commitment to understanding the exact circumstances of Esther’s death.”

Dingley, 37, had been walking solo in the mountains near the Spanish and French border and was last seen on 22 November.
