The search for a 22-year-old man from Sydney’s north shore has ended, after a multi-agency search team discovered his body on Tuesday.
The young man’s car was found in a Hawkesbury carpark on Monday, but it took multiple search efforts to locate him in nearby bushland.
He was last seen in Neutral Bay, about 9am on Saturday, and was reported missing “when he was unable to be located,” NSW Police said.
