The body of a resort manager missing on Koh Phi Phi has been located in a forest on the island. Austrian national, Florian Hallermann, who was the General Manager of the Zeavola Resort, was found dead 4 days after he went missing. The 56 year old was last seen on CCTV footage as he walked on the beach on September 11. His disappearance sparked a search operation in which over 50 island residents, hotel workers, and local authorities took part.

The Pattaya News reports that Mr Hallermann’s body was found yesterday, between rocks in a forest about 200 metres inland from the road. According to Koh Phi Phi police, he had been dead at least 3 days and the authorities have speculated that he could have slipped on a rock and cracked his head while hiking in the forest. A post-mortem will take place to determine the cause of death and police have confirmed a Covid-19 test will be carried out as is standard procedure.

According to the Pattaya News report, the Austrian had lived on Koh Phi Phi for several decades and was a popular figure, well-known to locals. Police have pledged to conduct a transparent investigation into Mr Hallermann’s death.
