Police have recovered the body of a man from a dam on a property on the Central Coast.

Police from Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command had been searching for a 49-year-old man after he was reported missing by his family at the weekend.

The search involved local police and was assisted by officers on trail bikes, the Dog Unit, Polair, and Mounted Unit, as well as volunteers from the Volunteer Rescue Association (VRA) and State Emergency Service (SES).

About 10.30am yesterday (Tuesday 11 April 2017), a man’s body was found in a dam at Mardi, near Wyong.

A post mortem examination will be conducted this week to confirm identity and cause of death.

A brief will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

Police thank the volunteers, local community and media for their assistance.
