Police are appealing for information after the body of an unidentified man was found floating in the Auckland Harbour on Saturday.

The man, thought to be in his 20s, was found by a group of wake boarders in the water near the Auckland Harbour Bridge at about 10.50am on Saturday.

He is described as being Asian and of thin build.

He was wearing an Adidas tee shirt with a large red, yellow and green logo on the front.

The man also had a single chain necklace with a ring on it around his neck.

The body is not believed to have been in the water for more than a few hours.

Given the tide was on its way out at the time, it is unlikely he floated from the inner harbor area to where he was found, police said.

No one fitting the man's description has been reported missing to police so anyone who thinks they might know this man is urged to call police on 0274 367 561 or email jessica.phuang@police.govt.nz
