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.

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