The body of missing hiker Richard Baird has been found in a forested area in Aripo.

The 53-year-old went missing on Saturday after being separated from his group during a hike to the Aripo Waterfalls.

His body was found down a 600 ft precipice. The fire services are currently trying to recover the body. 

The body was found some four hours into the forest and rescuers are trying to determine whether they will need air support to remove his body.
