Police said on Sunday hunters had found the skeletal remains of a man in the Limassol district and believe it is someone reported missing some time ago.

The body was found by a group of hunters shortly after 10am in an inaccessible area near Episkopi.

The scene was cordoned off by police and a medical examiner was called as well as the fire service to retrieve the body.

According to police sources, it is estimated that the body belongs to a person who had been reported missing during the summer and disappeared in the specific area.

The identity of the body will be officially confirmed by DNA tests.
