The body of a man found on a beach near Rio Di Janeiro last week has been identified as missing backpacker Rye Hunt.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop delivered the news, saying Brazilian authorities confirmed the body is that of the 25-year-old Tasmanian.
Hunt is believed to have taken potent hallucinogen NBOMe prior to his disappearance on May 21.
Hunt’s sister Romany Brodribb said “thinking about life without him is unfathomable. He will be very missed by us all.”
