Esther Dingley, 37 year-old who was the boyfriend of the hiker continued searching for her alone after the police reportedly stopped search when they ran out of search options. On Monday, 9th of August the 37 year-old found the remains of the body in the Pyrenees.

Two weeks ago a bone which was believed to be that of the British Hiker was found and now with the new development it is hoped that the family will get the closure they have been desiring.

A spokesman for the Department said “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.”

Her family has expressed their sadness at the news wen her bones were found they said “We have all known for many months that the chance we would get to hug our beloved Esther again, to feel her warm hand in ours, to see her beautiful smile and to watch the room light up again whenever she arrived was tiny, but with this confirmation that small hope has now faded.”

The police said investigation on the case is still on-going and foul play has not been ruled out from the case.
