Sunday Mail - - NEWS - JOSEPHINE LIM

PO­LICE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the dis­cov­ery of a body found near a reser­voir em­bank­ment in the Ade­laide Hills.

While the iden­tity of the de­ceased has not been con­firmed, rel­a­tives of miss­ing Athel­stone man, Giuseppe “Joe” Rosi­tano, 44, have been no­ti­fied of the dis­cov­ery by po­lice. Mr Rosi­tano was last seen when he was in­volved in a mi­nor mo­tor ve­hi­cle crash in the area on Au­gust 19.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to Kan­ga­roo Creek Reser­voir on Gorge Rd, near Para­combe, about 2.35pm yes­ter­day.

A passer-by walk­ing his dog spot­ted the body near the em­bank­ment and raised the alarm. Po­lice cor­doned off the area as a po­ten­tial crime scene and foren­sic of­fi­cers combed the em­bank­ment. Po­lice will pre­pare a re­port for the State Coro­ner.

The reser­voir, which is not ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic, is sur­rounded by a high fence.

MISS­ING: Giuseppe Rosi­tano.
