A BRITISH university student was found dead on Saturday, a day after he disappeared during a hike with other undergraduates in Mallorca.

According to reports, Mischa Nee, 20, is believed to have fallen some distance in difficult, rocky terrain.

Mischa is said to have been “exploring a nearby hill” during a short trip to the island, when fellow Stanford University students lost sight of him.

 Local authorities began a search, but did not find his body until the following day.

The computer science major was planning to minor in either art history or studio art.

He had worked as a computer science tutor with Breakout Mentors since April 2017, teaching computer programming to children. 

Mischa had also served as an event coordinator and graphic designer for Stanford University Dance Marathon, an annual fundraising effort led by students, since October 2016. 

He took part in the Bing Overseas Studies Program (BOSP) twice during his time at Stanford, studying in Madrid and Florence in Italy.
