Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery of male human remains at a beach near Lake Macquarie.
About 1.15pm today a fisherman contacted police after human remains were found south of Caves Beach.
An operation was then conducted to recover the remains, which have now been taken to Newcastle Morgue for forensic examination.
The body is yet to be formally identified, and investigations are continuing into the circumstances surrounding the man’s death.
Two weeks ago, a major search was conducted in the area for two missing men, aged 18 and 20, after the body of an 18-year-old Edgeworth woman was found washed up on Ghosties Beach.
Inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death are ongoing.
Anyone with information that might assist investigators is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
