Police believe the body of 23-year-old Singaporean national Heng Yi Goh washed ashore yesterday at Wyadup Rocks.

At around 11.20am on Thursday Police were informed human remains had washed ashore just 200m from where Mr Goh had been swept off rocks at Injidup natural spa.

After five long days the difficult search for Mr Goh was cancelled on Sunday July 4.

Drones and jet skis from Surf lifesaving WA had joined the search as did the Naturaliste Volunteer Marine Rescue Group and State Emergency Service volunteers from around the South West.

Swells of up to 6m meant a helicopter and marine search were unable to locate Mr Goh.

Mr Goh was the third tourist to be swept off rocks from popular locations in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park this year prompting a push for life jackets to be worn when rock fishing and boating.

Mr Goh’s family has been advised of the development.
