Missing British tourist Aslan King has been found dead in Australia after going missing from a campsite last Saturday.
Mr King, 25, hit his head on the ground after apparently suffering a seizure and ran into bushland on the well-known Great Ocean Road, Princetown, Victoria, sparking a huge search operation.
His body was found in a creek around a kilometre away from the campsite by police using a a helicopter, sniffer dogs, thermal imaging cameras and police in horseback.
Two of Mr King’s long-time friends identified his body.
An illustrator from Brighton, Mr King had only arrived in Australia with four friends two weeks before the tragedy.

Friends said that Mr King, who had been drinking, suffered from what appeared to be a seizure in the early hours, before falling off his chair and hitting his head.

His friends first thought he was joking, but after falling off the chair he crawled under a nearby car. They said he then appeared to lose consciousness and they tried to restrain him but he ran into bushland.


Investigators will prepare a report for the coroner. Victoria Police have thanked the public and media for their assistance.
