The body was found in mangroves on Central Park Drive at the back of Trusts Stadium at around 10.30am and has now been removed from the scene.

Police say a post mortem is scheduled to take place tomorrow morning and formal identification will also take place tomorrow.

Police will not confirm whether the body is that of Adam Tan who went missing in the area a week ago and say it's too early to say if the death is suspicious.

Police say no further information is able to be confirmed until the identification process is complete and the man's next of kin have been advised.
