A BODY believed to be that of a missing Woonona man has been found near Appin.
Whilst the body is yet to be formally identified, it is believed to be that of a 52-year-old man, who was last seen leaving a Woonona home last Thursday (March 14) in a blue sedan.
The blue sedan was located on a trail at the entrance of the Dharawal National Park, just off Appin Road, by Highway Patrol Police officers about 8.10am yesterday (Tuesday March 19).
A search of the area commenced, involving officers from Campbelltown and Lake Illawarra Police Area Command, the Dog Unit, PolAir, Police Rescue and the State Emergency Service (SES).
The search concluded just after 2pm today when the body was found in the National Park. Although the investigation is ongoing, initial inquiries suggest the circumstances surrounding the death are not suspicious.
A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
Police would like to thank members of the public for their assistance.
