Body ‘found tied to a tree’ in Amazon in hunt for missing Brit journalist
The Metro says Two bodies have been ‘found tied to a tree’ in the search for a missing British journalist and a Brazilian indigenous expert in the Amazon rainforest.
Dom Phillips, 57, and Bruno Pereira, 41, vanished while on a reporting trip in western Brazil a week ago.
Mr Phillips’ family said they were told two bodies had been found in a devastating phone call from the Brazilian ambassador to the UK today.
Paul Sherwood, Phillips’s brother-in-law told The Guardian: ‘He didn’t describe the location and just said it was in the rainforest and he said they were tied to a tree and they hadn’t been identified yet.
