Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a man whose body has been found at Ocean Shores.
About 10.30am yesterday, the 67-year-old man’s body was located in a dam on a property adjoining the golf course in Coonawarra Street.
It’s believed the man was pinned beneath a ride-on lawnmower, which had rolled over into the water.
Police from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command secured a crime scene, which has been examined by forensics officers.
A post mortem examination will be conducted in coming days to determine a cause of death; however, it’s not being treated as suspicious.
The man had been reported missing by family members on Monday after failing to turn up to work.
A report will be prepared for the NSW coroner.
