Missing Joey Hoffmann's around 7:30 a.m. by two Turkish police dogs in a dried up river bed near the Turkish town of Narlikuyu. The 21-year-old Haaksbergen man's body showed no visible signs of violence, according to newspaper AD. 

According to the newspaper, the body lay next to a rock near a quarry used by the locals as a dump site. An autopsy will be done to determine exactly how died. The body was taken to Silifke, where the autopsy will be done. 

Hoffmann was last seen in Silifke on July 8th. He traveled there with couple Bjorn and Derya Breukers to help them set up a new home. They camped on a piece of ground the coupe wanted to buy - near where his body was found. The couple told the authorities that Hoffmann became homesick and left them to return to the Netherlands. He never made it home.
