Police retrieve body from waters off Lennox Head

There is some sad news to report as I take the live blog into the afternoon.

Police have retrieved the body of a man from waters off Lennox Head, in the northern rivers region of New South Wales. The crew of PolAir 5 had been searching the area this morning after a 19-year-old swimmer was reported missing.

The body of a man has been recovered by divers. While the body has yet to be formally identified, it is believed to be the man reported missing. He had been swimming at Lennox Head about 6pm on Friday.

The man’s family were at the beach this morning and have been provided with support by local police. Police have thanked members of the Lennox Head-Alstonville surf life saving club, Marine Rescue NSW, the Westpac Helicopter crew and the local community.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
