Police find body of man missing in Brisbane River

POLICE have located the body of a young man who had been missing after diving into the Brisbane River on Sunday.

Just after 11am on Tuesday, Queensland Water Police officers located the body about one nautical mile toward Colleges Crossing from where he went missing.

Investigations are continuing into this incident and police will be preparing a report for the coroner.


The 21-year-old entered the river around 2:15pm on Sunday afternoon and failed to resurface.

Crews spent several hours scouring the water in a bid to find any clues as to his whereabouts.

There had been reports of people sighting a bull shark in the area around that time, although an exact cause of death is yet to be determined.
