But that’s exactly where he was. He had been there since 1945, appointed by Queen Elizabeth’s father, George VI, who was unaware of his double life. But that’s exactly where he was.

"Investigators will prepare a report for the coroner. Police would like to thank the public and media for their assistance during the search."

Mr King is said to have hit his head on the ground before quickly getting up and rushing into the thick bushland around the camp.

He and four friends had been staying near a popular tourist site known as the Twelve Apostles - a collection of rocks rising out of the sea near Princeton, about 100 miles southwest of Melbourne.

A helicopter, sniffer dogs, thermal imaging cameras and police on horseback were all being used to try to find him.

Police said the thickness of the vegetation, deep waters and the rocky clifftops were making the search difficult.

The area is also know for having a large number of deadly tiger snakes.

Mr King's friends and family had described his disappearance as "completely out of character".
