Sydney: Missing man’s body found off North Harbor

The body of a missing man has been found by two fishermen after days of searching for emergency crews.

The body of a man who disappeared after a boat capsized off Sydney’s north port last week has been found.

Fishermen found the body of the missing 49-year-old just before noon.

The police with the Sea Area Command were told that calls for help had been heard shortly before 04.50 on Saturday.

A 25-year-old man was rescued from the ocean and taken to Little Manly Beach.

He told police he and a friend launched their boat from the Tunks Park boat ramp around 6 p.m. 21 Friday, but the vessel capsized around noon.

A major search of the area followed, involving Marine Area Command, local police, PolAir, Surf Life Saving NSW and the Westpac helicopter.

Wednesday morning, police were called to Middle Harbor after reports that two fishermen found a body in the water near Washaway Bay, Clontarf.

The body was found by the Marine Area Command and identified as the missing man.

A report will be prepared for the forensic pathologist.
