Body of missing cyclist recovered from Kalmthout Heath

A cyclist, who went missing on Kalmthout Heath, has been found dead. He was reported missing by relatives on Sunday.

The 37-year-old from Mol (Antwerp Province) went missing on Sunday afternoon.  The gentleman had visited family in the neighbourhood and then drove to the heath where he got on his bike. A first search on Sunday yielded no results.

 During a search on Monday involving fire-fighters the man’s body was discovered beside his bike.  The cause of death is yet to be established.  The public prosecutor doesn’t believe anybody else was involved and is working on the scenario that the man had an accident.
