A YOUNG snowboarder has been found dead after he went missing off-piste in the Sierra Nevada.
The body of the 24-year-old male from Malaga was found at 11.30PM yesterday after his six friends reported him missing.
He was last seen practising snowboarding in the Rio area of the resort at 7PM.
His friends reported him missing to the Guardia Civil after not seeing him for two hours.
His body was recovered five feet off-piste and initial indications suggest he died as a direct result of a fall.
