The treacherous cliffs at Pat Morton lookout. Photo Trover

Police are seeking public help to establish the identity of a woman whose body was found on rocks below a lookout near Lennox Head on Friday afternoon (March 30).

They were alerted to the body at the base of the Pat Morton Lookout on the Coast Road about 4.50pm.

Officers climbed to the base of the lookout; however, fading light and a rising tide meant the body could not be retrieved.

The scene remained under police guard overnight, and the retrieval operation took place on Saturday.

The still woman remains unidentified, however, and the circumstances of how she came to be at the base of the lookout are still to be determined.

A post mortem examination will be conducted in coming days to determine the cause of death.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to call Ballina Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
