Mystery as photos on phone used by Esther Dingley could hold key to her death. Esther’s body was discovered near to the location where her skull was recently found. The shocking discovery was made by boyfriend Dan on Monday afternoon.

According to investigators a £270 Redmi Note 9 Pro phone was discovered, which could hold the key to Esther’s untimely death. It is believed that the photos on the phone could reveal information.

According to the Sun the mobile phone was switched off for much of Esther’s hike, but it is believed that signals could still have been sent before she died. According to reports the phone has been taken for investigation.

British hiker Esther went missing after hiking on her own in the mountains close to the Spanish and French border in the Pyrenees. The last sighting of the hiker was on November 22.

A source told the Sun: “Phones are always crucial to solving cases like this.

“This is why the device will be picked over by the forensics officers working on the case.

“As far as the ongoing investigation is concerned, it is easily the most important bit of equipment.”

Esther’s body was discovered on August 9 by boyfriend Dan.

“On the afternoon of 9 August, Esther Dingley’s body and equipment were found together in the Pyrenees, close to where a bone was discovered two weeks ago,” said LBT Global, a support organisation.

“The discovery was made by Esther’s partner Daniel Colegate, following relentless search efforts by him since her disappearance.”

“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.”
