A large-scale search for a man missing in Victoria’s alpine region has come to a tragic end, with authorities discovering the body of Poshik Sharma.

The 21-year-old student had been missing in Marysville since Thursday afternoon, when he stormed off from a pub following a disagreement with friends.

This morning, Mr Sharma’s body was discovered among bushland off Marysville Road, around one kilometre from where he vanished.

Authorities focused their search on the area following two sightings from members of the public.

The Indian national had only lived in Victoria for 18 months after relocating to Australia.

He was studying to become an automotive engineer and leaves behind three older sisters.
