SURF lifesavers have discovered a body in the search for a missing boy off Cabarita Beach.

Police are yet to identify the body but believe it is the body of the Kenyan teenager, Samuel Macharia, who went missing after going for a run and a swim at Cabarita Beach on Sunday.

The search for the missing boy involved Tweed Byron police, police divers, SES, lifesavers and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.
