The body of tour operator employee who went missing for more than a week in Wiltshire has been discovered after a police appeal.

Robert Dunn, who was last seen on May 29, worked for overland adventure specialist operator Dragoman as a crew member.

He had been working on tours for the operator since 2014 to destinations including India, central Asia, the Nile Route, South America and east and southern Africa.

Dunn had recently taken some time off work to travel around the UK visiting friends and family.

The operator’s Americas destination manager Helen Bateman confirmed that police search and rescue teams had found his body.

Wiltshire Police said on Saturday: “Search teams looking for missing man Robert Dunn have this afternoon found a body in Savernake Forest.

“Although formal identification has not yet taken place, we have spoken to Mr Dunn’s family to inform them of the news.

“There is nothing to suggest any suspicious circumstances at this time.

“Our thoughts are with Mr Dunn’s family and friends at this very sad time and we would ask people to respect their privacy.”

Dragoman director Charlie Hopkinson said: “Rob was a much loved crew member who had been working for us for over five years.

“We are all obviously devastated by this news and would ask that his friends and family are left to grieve in peace.”

The operator has cancelled its attendance at the Experience Latin America show in London which starts today (Monday).
