POLICE have confirmed that the body found floating in Lake Macquarie yesterday was that of a 67-year-old Swansea local.
There does not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.
However, how the man became caught up on moorings in Black Ned’s Bay after he was last seen going for a walk about 6.30am is yet to be determined.
His body was found about 1.30pm.
A friend of the man, who lived alone, alerted police to his disappearance this afternoon.
The identification came after detectives were forced to go through boat and car registrations after struggling to identify the man.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
