  • Myers failed to return from a five-day trip to Tararua Forest Park on New Zealand's North Island

Mr Myers, a building surveyor who lived in New Zealand's capital, Wellington, had been due to return from a solo, four-day hike in the Tararua Range north of the city on June 1.

The body of Wellington man Darren Myers was found by search teams today.

The brother-in-law of a hiker found dead in the Tararua Ranges has spoken of his family's "anguish" during the time he was missing and the tragic news of his death.

'It happened very suddenly.

'When you're undertaking a journey like this, there's always going to be a risk, ' he added.

Myers and Shaw moved to Wellington from Sawbridgeworth, England, 18 months ago.

"One of the hardest thing's we've had to bear with is. that he's up there and alive and waving at a helicopter, potentially, and not being seen and potentially in a lot of pain or a lot of distress", Styles said.

Mr Myers had come to New Zealand around 18 months ago with his family from the United Kingdom under the skills shortage programme and was working as a building surveyor in Karori.

Search operations were hampered by rough terrain and bad weather, including snow.

Police search and rescue incident controller Sergeant Tony Matheson said the weather conditions were particularly bad, with wind gusts of up to 145km/h, very poor visibility and rain.

It is expected to take some time for the teams to reach the location.

Police said it was likely to be a clue as he was known to have the brand of chocolate with him on his hike.
