Appeal for information after man located deceased – Bermagui

NSW Police Media: Appeal for information after man located deceased – Bermagui

Police are appealing for witnesses after the body of a man was found in a river in the state’s south.

Just after 5pm yesterday (Saturday 12 May 2018), the body of a 26-year-old man was found in the Bermagui River, opposite an address on South River Road, Bermagui.

The man had been reported missing earlier that morning from his home nearby.

The man was located with injuries, which are believed to be consistent with a motor vehicle accident the man was involved in about 8.45pm on Friday (11 May 2018).

The accident occurred on West Street, Bermagui, where the vehicle he was driving, a 2003 Subaru Impreza, crashed into the front fence of a property.

The man fled the scene after the crash.

Police from South Coast Police District are appealing for anyone with information who had contact with the man, or sighted him between these times, to contact them.

The man is described as 182cm tall, athletic build, with a shaven head and stubble. He is also extensively tattooed with a rose on the back of his left hand and neck tattoos. He was believed to be wearing dark clothing.

Whilst investigations are ongoing, the man’s death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence. Police remind people they should not report crime information via their social media pages.
