The body of a 43-year-old father has been found by police after he was caught in a rip and lost at sea.
Police on Monday confirmed they located the body of Dan Cojocea, 43, after he was reportedly sucked into a rip while swimming at Mary Ellis Wreck Beach, near Port Lincoln on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula on Friday afternoon.
While paramedics were able to rescue the children, the Roxby Downs man was unable to get to shore.
Police recovered the body just before 8.30am on Monday after he was found dead on a nearby beach.
Authorities confirmed there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, and police will prepare a report for the coroner.
