Police searching for a missing Newcastle man have located a body at Stockton.
Emergency services were called to Fullerton Street about 11.45am today (Wednesday 22 June 2016), after a member of the public located a man’s body at the edge of the water.
Officers from Newcastle City Local Area Command attended and retrieved the body.
While the body is yet to be formally identified, it’s believed to be a 20-year-old man who went missing last Thursday (16 June 2016).
The man’s family has been notified.
His death isn’t being treated as suspicious and police will prepare a report for the Coroner.
