A missing UK tourist, Thomas Berman, has been found dead on the Santa Cruz island, one of the Galapagos Islands, which is a part of the Galapagos National Park.
The 78-year-old man was reported missing on Saturday when his Ecuador tour guide noted Berman did not meet his group for a boat trip to Isla Isabela . After an extensive search of the Galapagos island rangers located the lifeless body on Sunday near the tourist attraction of Los Grietas, a place not accessible by road but rather through hiking on uneven volcanic rock.
Berman had been in the Ecuadorian provinces of the Galapagos Islands since last Tuesday as a tourist. The Galapagos National Park consisting of some 19 islands is Ecuador’s first national park that sees nearly 150,000 tourists annually.
Investigators are looking into the cause of death.
