THE body of David Oldman, who disappeared at the beginning of June, has been found near the village of La Concepcion, close to Huercal-Overa.
His remains were discovered by a group of hunters at around 11am on Sunday, October 9.
The 66-year-old ex-councillor went missing as he attempted to complete a 2,250 kilometre trek from Gibraltar House in London to Gibraltar itself.
He was last seen as he left a Huercal-Olvera hotel on June 9, setting out in the direction of Albox, and fears grew when he failed to board a June 14 flight back to the UK.
The Guardia Civil have assumed responsibility for the investigation into his death, and a post mortem is apparently scheduled for Monday, October 10.
The experienced hiker’s family launched a series of social media campaigns during the summer as they tried to locate their relative, and last month some members travelled to Almeria to walk the stretch on which he vanished.
