A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner after a man’s body was found on Coogee Beach overnight.

Officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command were called to the scene about 6.30pm yesterday (Wednesday 22 February 2023).

Police had made a public appeal at the weekend for assistance to find a 54-year-old man who’d told his family on Saturday (18 February 2023), he was going for a swim at Maroubra.

After failing to return home, police were notified Sunday (19 February 2023), and a search was initiated.

While the body is yet to be formally identified, police are liaising with the man’s family.
