Resort body was missing British man
Tuesday 29 December 2009
The body found in Switzerland on Monday has been identified as the missing British graduate Myles Robinson, Swiss police said today.
The 23-year-old from Wandsworth, south-west London, was last seen in the ski resort of Wengen on Tuesday December 22.
A statement released by Swiss police said the body was found by a "private search team" yesterday in Lauterbrunnen, near Wengen.
Mr Robinson was last seen in the early hours of last Tuesday as he walked a family friend back to her hotel in Wengen from the Blue Monkey bar.
The 23-year-old was staying with his family at the Hotel Eiger, only a few hundred yards away.
Police scoured the hotel where the family were staying using sniffer dogs and the Swiss army was called in to help with helicopter searches of the area.
Mr Robinson, who studied at Newcastle University and Charterhouse school, was reportedly due to start a new job with a financial services company next week.
The Robinson family, from Wandsworth, has visited the resort for 15 years.
