"This meant that the body was Gareth David Huntley," he said.
Huntley's body was found in a river in Pulau Tioman on Wednesday after he was reported missing on May 27.
The 34-year-old London accountant, who came to the island to volunteer in a turtle conservation project, had gone trekking alone to the Lubuk Teja waterfall on May 27.
He had not been seen since then and a large scale search and rescue operation was mounted to look for him.
On Wednesday, search and rescue personnel returning from the jungle found a decomposed body in the Mentawak River, about 20m from a kayak storage unit at the Juara Lagoon chalet.
