Sadly, a young man has died while bushwalking at Sentinel Range, near Strathgordon.
Police believe the 19-year-old from Hobart fell from height during a bushwalk yesterday.
Tasmania Police are this morning working to recover his body, using the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Tasmania.
The teenager’s family raised the alarm yesterday evening, after the experienced bushwalker failed to return home from a day trip as planned.
The rescue helicopter flew to the incident site last night and a ground search and rescue team was also deployed.
Weather conditions overnight forced the helicopter to return to Hobart about 2am. The air search resumed early this morning, with the helicopter crew locating the man’s body shortly before 9 o’clock.
The body recovery operation is currently underway.
Our thoughts are with the man’s family and loved ones at this sad time.
