Cape Town – An inquest has been opened after the body of an Icelandic teenager was found on Table Mountain, Western Cape Police said on Monday.


His body was found by a man on a morning hike in Platteklip Gorge on Sunday, said Captain FC van Wyk.


He immediately informed rescue and police services.


The 19-year-old was reported missing at 22:47 on Saturday, said Western Cape health emergency medical services spokesperson Robert Daniels.


He said he was informed that the teen was a tourist from Iceland.


"We are unable to speculate as to his cause of death."


Van Wyk said his next of kin had yet to be informed.


A post-mortem would determine the exact cause of death.
