Arrest over attack on Aussie tourist

ARGENTINIAN police have arrested a 30-year-old man over a Boxing Day attack on a 23-year-old Perth woman, Emma Kelly.

The ABC reported that police had taken into custody a local man and seized evidence said to link him to the attack.

Ms Kelly was reported missing after failing to return from a hike in the mountain area of Cajon Del Azul, in the Patagonia region of southern Argentina.

Ms Kelly had been staying at a friend's house in the town of El Bolson and had been driven to an easy hiking trail nearby.

She was found four days later, disoriented and dehydrated.
