Brazil: UK Ambassador apologises for incorrectly saying bodies of missing in Amazon had been found

"Brazil envoy apologises to Dom Phillips’ family for saying bodies had been found", 14 June 2022

...The Brazilian ambassador to the UK has apologised to the family of Dom Phillips for incorrectly telling them his body had been found in the Amazon along with that of his missing travelling partner Bruno Pereira.

On Monday morning an embassy official called Phillips’s brother-in-law and sister to inform them that the bodies of the British journalist and Brazilian Indigenous expert had been found tied to a tree, one week after the pair vanished on the River Itaquaí.

However, this information was later denied by the federal police, whose forensic science teams have been examining an area where Indigenous volunteer searchers found items belonging to the two missing men on Saturday afternoon...

“We are deeply sorry the embassy passed on to the family yesterday information that did not prove correct,” Arruda said.

The Brazilian diplomat claimed that a multi-agency team created at the London embassy to respond to the disappearances had been “misled” by information it had received from “investigating officials”...

“Our thoughts remain with Dom, Bruno, yourselves and the other members of both families,” the ambassador said.
