Missing German tramper found

7:56 am on 15 March 2015

Searchers have found a German woman who sparked concerns for her safety after leaving a message in a tramping hut near Nelson last week.

Police said she was found yesterday afternoon near the Roebuck Hut in the Mt Richmond Ranges.

She was taken to hospital for medical treatment.

The search operation was launched when other trampers raised the alarm after finding a note the German woman had written in the Mt Starveall hut log on Tuesday.
