A body has been found in the search for missing tramper Darren Myers in the Tararua Range.

Police announced this morning they found a body during the search for 49-year-old Darren Myers.

Myers has been missing for 11 days after setting out on a hike through the Northern Crossing on June 1.

It is expected to take some time for the teams to reach the location.

The tramper's brother-in-law, Duncan Styles, has confirmed that the body found is Mr Myers.

Myers had died very suddenly, possibly last week, although it was not yet clear whether further upstream or from a fall down the six-metre waterfall where he was located, Sergeant Tony Matheson told reporters.

While most commented about the resemblance of the creature to Dobby, a few raised suspicions about the video being a hoax. While some are convinced the creature has been photoshopped in, others are genuinely freaked out by the discovery.

He was "really motivated in helping out New Zealand's building crisis", Mr Styles said.

Myers and Shaw moved to Wellington from Sawbridgeworth, England, 18 months ago.

He said the family felt gutted over the news.

'One of the hardest things we've had to bear with is the fact that he's up there and alive and waving at a helicopter potentially and not being seen, ' he said.

On Monday, police had found a chocolate bar wrapper almost 2,000 feet below where Mr Myers was last known to be.

A British hiker missing for nearly a fortnight in a New Zealand mountain range has been found dead at the bottom of a waterfall. The Tararua range is popular because it is close to Wellington, but the steep terrain and unpredictable weather can pose a challenge to hikers.
