chopper.jpgNew Zealand police said Friday that they had found a body believed to be that of Israeli tourist Liat Okin, 35 who went missing while hiking in late March – as reported HERE on YWN.

Local police told the Jerusalem Post that a police search team found the body near the South Island’s popular Routeburn Track.

Police flew into the area after a private search team, funded by the family of Okin, found a backpack and shoes belonging to the missing woman Thursday.

The police search, failing to find any trace of her, was called off April 22. A private search coordinated by her brother, Itamar Tas, was launched two days later.

The cause of her death was not released as of this time.
