A broken father revisited the scene where his stepson's body was discovered seven weeks after he disappeared.
The search for 23-year-old Dylan Bartlett ended in a tragedy on Monday when his body was found in a toilet building air duct in a shopping center in southern Adelaide.
Bartlett was last seen on the morning of September 9 at his home in Noarlunga Downs – 30 km from Adelaide.
His stepfather Troy Wisman was seen on Wednesday at the Noarlunga Homemaker Center where he laid some red and white roses in memory of Mr. Bartlett.
Police in South Australia do not know how Mr. Bartlett's body entered the vent, but say at this stage that they do not consider death suspicious.
Mr. Bartlett's friend, Renae Coombe, remembered him as a & # 39; friendly, happy person who was always so sweet & # 39 ;.
The police were called to the center of Noarlunga Homemaker on Monday at 4.40 pm after a body was found in the air duct of a toilet block.
The police identified the body as belonging to the young man in a statement on Wednesday.
South Australia police said they were unsure why Mr. Bartlett's body was in the air duct.
However, they do not treat death as suspicious.

& # 39; Yesterday I received a phone call and that was it, it was found, & # 39; Mr. Wisman said Nine news.
He burst into tears as he continued to talk about his stepson.
& # 39; I don't think he was trying to break in, I think he was hiding. I don't know for sure (why he was in the air duct), & Mr. 39 said.
He said this was only his opinion and the investigation is still ongoing.
A report is being prepared for the coroner.
