The body of missing tramper, Christchurch man Mark William Robinson, has been discovered south of Nelson.

Search and rescue teams looking for Mr William Robinson recovered his body in scrub off the Dry Weather Rd, between Glenhope and Tapawera about 10pm yesterday.

A formal identification is yet to be completed, but police believe the person recovered fits the description of the missing man.

Robinson, 37, has not been seen since last Friday morning, when he told his partner he was going to work.
