The 4WD car containing a man’s body found on Saturday (January 19) may have crashed into the river two or three days earlier, police say.

About 7am, a member of the public noticed the vehicle submerged in the river off Rogan’s Bridge at Seelands, near Grafton.

Emergency services were contacted and the body of a 43-year-old man was extricated from the vehicle.

It is believed the incident occurred on January 16 or 17.

Officers from Coffs/Clarence Police District are investigating the circumstances of the crash and a report will be prepared for the Coroner.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
