Body washes up on Marcus Beach

A BODY has washed up on Marcus Beach not far from where a man went missing in rough surf on Sunday afternoon.

The body was discovered today about 5.20am.

Is is believed to be that of the 37-year-old father of two, who has been missing in surf since Sunday. 

The man, of Gordon Park, was on a day trip with his wife and seven-month-old child when he went for a final swim of the day at an unpatrolled Peregian Beach before the drive home.

His wife reported him missing 30 minutes later when he failed to return.

It sparked a massive search involving Surf Lifesavers, the Water Police and the Coast Guard and several helicopters.

About 15 lifesavers from surf clubs across the Sunshine Coast put their hands up to continue looking for the missing despite their season ending on Monday.

Queensland Police Service in a statement this morning wrote that although formal identification has yet to occur, the family of the missing man has been advised of the discovery.
