Swiss police have confirmed that a body found on Monday near the village of Wengen in the Bernese Oberland was that of a missing British tourist.
The 23-year-old man, identified in media reports as Myles Robinson of London, appeared to have slipped and fallen over a cliff while trying to negotiate a steep path, investigators said.
There was no indication that any third party was involved.
The man, who was staying in Wengen with his parents and sister, was reported missing on December 22. He had failed to return after accompanying a friend to her hotel in the early hours.
Sniffer dogs and helicopters with infrared cameras had been called in to help with the search, but his body was eventually found by friends of the family.
