Missing man found dead on NSW north coast

The body of a man reported missing on the NSW north coast last week has sadly been found in bushland.

Police had been conducting inquiries to find the 44-year-old, last seen leaving a caravan park on Iluka Road, near Yamba on Thursday August 6.

The man’s Jeep was found unattended in bushland nearby at Iluka Road and Hickey Street at Iluka on Saturday August 8.


A search of the area was then carried out, with police finding a man’s body nearby yesterday afternoon.

Police say the body is yet to be formally identified, but they believe it is that of the missing man.

A report is being prepared for the Coroner.
