Statement attributable to Sergeant Jason Leadley

Searchers looking for missing Balclutha man Ian Marshall have recovered his body late this afternoon.

Mr Marshall’s body was found in the Clutha River by members of the Police Dive Squad and the death will be referred to the Coroner.

While this was an outcome no-one wanted we would like to acknowledge the Search and Rescue volunteers from across the district who have assisted with the search over the last three days.

Police offer their sympathies to the friends and family of Mr Marshall.
