Mystery death in Australia

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Sunday that the body of a Korean male who went missing in Australia was found off a beach in Sydney.

The foreign ministry said that the body, so far only identified as a male in his 20s, was found in the sea near Jones Bay Wharf in Pyrmont, a suburb of Sydney. The foreign ministry said the man went missing on Monday after taking a taxi from central Sydney to get home.

The ministry said that the man had been working at a Sydney restaurant on a working holiday visa since February. It added that Australian police will conduct an autopsy to find the cause of his death.

“The Korean Consulate in Sydney has asked police for a quick investigation to find the cause of death and is providing necessity support to his family members who are about to visit Australia,” the ministry said in a statement. joo.kyungdon@joongang.co.kr
