The body of 32-year-old Benjamin Roper was found in the basement of his house following a lengthy search by police.

Mr Roper had been missing for five days before police discovered his body. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Friend and fellow Virgin Australia colleague Jamie Hannen said the tight-knit group of Virgin flight attendants were struggling to come to terms with the loss.

“Hosties are a really close group. We spend a lot of time together, both at work and out socially. Ben’s death has devastated us.”
