Body found in search for hill walker

RESCUE teams looking for a missing hill walker in south west Mayo have found a body.

Geoff Rowden, 38, from Dublin had been missing since last Tuesday.

The Dublin man was last seen when he set off on a walk twoards Mweelrea, the highest mountain in Connacht.

A body was found earlier today, but the identity has not yet been confirmed.

The missing man, a father of two, told his family he intended to camp in the Doolough Valley area on Tuesday night after completing a ridge climb of the mountain.

However, he never returned to his vehicle.
