Australian police have confirmed the identity of a body found in the bush to be that of missing British man, Aslan King.
The body was found in a creek just over a kilometre from where King was last seen, after an intense four-day search.
The 25-year-old had suffered what friends described as a possible seizure during a coastal camping trip.
Mr King, an illustrator who only relocated to Australia two weeks ago, is said to have hit his head on the ground before getting up quickly and rushing into thick bushland surrounding the campsite where he and four friends had been staying.
Australian police told the Herald Sun that his behaviour "took everyone by surprise", and made it harder to find him as there were no clues as to why he left the campsite or where he went.
Sergeant Danny Brown told The Age that it was not the result the family wanted, but they now had closure.
He said: "As parents, and I'm a parent, we all want to know where our kids are. At least Aslan's mother and father know exactly where he is and we can send him home."
Authorities conducted a large scale search for the missing man from Brighton using a helicopter, boats and mounted police.
The campsite King was last seen at is located near the town of Princetown on the Victoria coast, close to the popular tourist site known as the Twelve Apostles.
