A body has been found in an abandoned Victorian mine shaft by police investigating the suspicious disappearance of a man eight months ago.
Detectives investigating the suspicious April 2013 disappearance of 48-year-old Deer Park man Ricky Lee Ganly made the discovery on Sunday.
Police divers found the body in a submerged car, inside a water-filed 20-metre-deep mine site near Avoca in central Victoria.
The body, which is yet to be identified, was found about 2.30pm (AEDT).
Police say Mr Ganly was last seen by his girlfriend at his Doherty Street home about on April 28 last year.
He has not accessed his bank accounts or been seen since.
