SYDNEY - The body of a 63-year-old German tourist missing for two days in a national park in a remote part of Australia was found Wednesday.

Bridgette Sue Thubeauville was on a 50-day coach trip with 21 other German women organised by Germany's Rotel Tours.

She went missing when the party was visiting Geikie Gorge National Park, 20 kilometres from Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

She became separated from her companions Monday morning on a remote walking trail. The temperature at the time was 45 degrees Celsius.

Police spokesman Sergeant Brian Cowie said more than 30 people had been involved in the search, as well as a helicopter, a boat and horses brought in from a nearby cattle station.

The cause of death is not yet known.

The German woman's tour group has continued with its itinerary, but a representative of the company is expected to arrive in Fitzroy Crossing.
