Body found on Mission Bay beach

A man’s body was found at approximately 6am this morning on Mission Bay beach.  The man’s body is yet to be confirmed if it was washed up on the beach or not.

An investigation into the unexplained death is currently underway by the Auckland City Police.  The area where the body was found was cordoned off by police as forensics examined the scene.  A large blue tarpaulin was used on the beach to block public view.

Police are conducting inquiries to identify the man to locate his next of kin. A post mortem examination of the body is intended to be carried out later today.
