Horror as a dead body is found on one of Sydney’s most popular beaches last night as police launch an investigation to formally identify it.
The body of a man was found on Coogee Beach overnight.
Officers with the Eastern Beaches Area Police Command were called to the scene around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Police have put out a public plea for help finding a 54-year-old man who had told his family he was going swimming at Maroubra Beach, about 3km south of Coogee Beach, on Saturday.
Police were notified after the man failed to return home on Sunday and a search was launched.
The body has yet to be formally identified, but police are contacting the man’s family.
