THE body found near a Tenterfield national park last week has been identified as that of a man.
A crime scene has been set up in the Basket Swamp National Park, about 25km north-east of Tenterfield, after a park ranger located the body near a remote campsite on Friday.
Police will now prepare a report for the Coroner.
Pol-Air joined State Emergency Service volunteers and detectives from New England Command in searching the area for evidence over the weekend and into Monday.
Police are appealing for anyone who was recently camping in the area or who may have information about the matter to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
