He was not carrying any form of identification.

Medical examinations are being conducted to determine the cause of death, but at this stage there is nothing to indicate suspicious circumstances.

Due to the inaccessible area where the body was found, police believe he may have fallen into the water at another location.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 131 444.
