The body of a male was discovered on La Tanta bay between 9am and 10am on Monday morning and later identified to be that of a man that went missing the night before.

47-year-old David Forte was identified by family members after it was discovered on Monday morning by a family friend at La Tante bay.

David was reported missing on Sunday evening at a popular beach called Russian point which is known for its rough seas.

GBN was told that the father of two went to the beach with another male whom he told he wanted to ease himself.

Noticing that David did not return after some time passed, the friend went in search of him and later informed the family and the authority that he was missing.

The search for the former Barman?  by members of the Coast Guard unit on Sunday evening was short-lived due to the high seas. The early morning quest by a family friend led to the discovery of his body.

David’s  sister, Nicole Forte  says her brother will be greatly missed.

David Forte was pronounced dead by a doctor and was taken away by undertakers; a postmortem will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

David is originally from la Tante but resided in Munich St Andrew with his partner.
