Body of missing man found in dam

A MAN who was reported missing in northern New South Wales two weeks ago has been found dead, 13 kilometres from where he was last seen.

The 41-year-old man was last seen at a home on Newton Street in Armidale on Monday.

Emergency services have spent the last two weeks searching for the man, but to no avail.


In a statement issued earlier this afternoon, NSW Police confirmed the man’s body had been found in a dam, 13 kilometres from the Newtown Street home.

The body was located in Dumaresq Dam on Dumaresq Dam Road about 9am on Sunday, police said.

Police say the man’s death is not being treated as suspicious.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
