Body of runner missing since Sunday discovered in ravine 

The third day of searches for missing runner Marílio Costa Leite ended with the extremely sad discovery of his body in a ravine, 3kms off the trail he had been ostensibly following on Sunday. An autopsy will explain the causes of death. For now authorities are working on the theory that the experienced runner, husband and father of two grown up children, became ‘disoriented’ and then fell five metres into the ravine, which is roughly 150 metres from the nearest property.
