NSW Police believe they have located the body of a 19-year-old man who has been missing from Jindabyne since 1:00 am on Friday (17 July).

Police appealed for help in locating Koby Mitchell on Saturday after he was last seen leaving a hotel in Jindabyne early on Friday morning. Officers from the Monaro Police District were notified on Friday when the 19-year-old failed to contact relatives.

His car was found locked and secured at a campground on the Alpine Way.

The body was found at around noon yesterday, according to NSW Police. Although the body has not yet been formally identified, it is believed to be the missing man.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be prepared for the Coroner.
