Police continue to investigate after a body was pulled out of the water at the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club in the Selkirk area off Gorge Road on Tuesday afternoon.
The body, not publicly identified by police as that of a man or woman at this point, is wrapped in a green tarp and investigators are still on scene. Two people who appear to be witnesses are also staying close by.
Victoria police were working with divers searching the Gorge Waterway earlier this month searching for a missing man, Duncan Pucker.
We’re currently on the scene for the report of a deceased person that has been located near the Selkirk trestle. We will have more information as it becomes available. #yyj
