The body of a young man reported missing has been located earlier today during a search in Mount Annan Botanical Gardens.

The man, aged 19, was last seen in Mount Annan about 6am last Sunday (July 17).

Officers attached to Camden Police Area Command were notified by his family when he could not be located, and an investigation into his whereabouts commenced.

Over the last four days, a large-scale, multi-agency search of the Mount Annan area was undertaken as part of the investigation.

The search was coordinated by Police Rescue, with assistance from Aviation Command (PolAir), Dog and Mounted Unit, Police Divers, Operations Support Group, Public Order and Riot Squad, State Emergency Service and NSW Rural Fire Service.

About 1.40pm today the body of the missing man was located within the Botanical Gardens.

Police say initial inquiries suggest the man’s death is not suspicious.

A report will now be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

Superintendent Fuller of Camden Police Area Command said he would like to thank the community for their assistance in providing information relevant to the investigation.

Camden Police issued two appeals for public assistance to locate the young man once he had been reported as missing.

Rahul Singh, aged 19, was last seen at Alchornea Crescent, Mount Annan.

When he could not be located, officers attached to Camden Police Area Command were notified and commenced an investigation into his whereabouts.

Following inquiries, he was last seen on CCTV entering the western gate of the Mount Anna Botanical Gardens just before 7am on the same day.
