PERTH, Australia -- Australian police said Tuesday that they have found the body of British backpacker who ran away from his campsite last weekend.

Aslan King’s body was found Tuesday morning in a creek close to the campground and was identified by friends, said Sergeant Danny Brown of the Victoria State Police.

The search effort included mounted police and police aircraft, specialist bushwalking teams, sniffer dogs and volunteers.

The campground, close to tourist attraction Twelve Apostles, is close to the ocean and the area is marked by rocky clifftops and thick vegetation.
