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.
