Police and State Emergency Service volunteers spent yesterday and this morning searching for Mr Malik in the bushland.

His family had held grave concerns as they described the disappearance as "out of character".

A police spokeswoman said she was unable to provide any further information on the circumstances surrounding the discovery of Mr Hussain's body, such as what time he was found and in what part of the bushland, as it was one of those "sad stories" where they intentionally left out details.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
