Actor Ben Unwin, who played Jesse McGregor in Australian soap Home and Away, has died at the age of 41.
The actor's body was discovered last week, on 14 August, but the cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
"Police attended Minyon Falls, Whian Whian (New South Wales), responding to a concern for welfare," a police statement read.
"The body of a 41-year-old man was located. The death is not being treated as suspicious."
Unwin played "bad boy" Jesse during two stints on the popular soap, between 1996 and 2000 and then from 2002 to 2005.
His character was often in trouble with the law, with one storyline seeing his character sent to prison after he was accused of burning down Alf Stewart's shop for insurance money.
Home and Away paid tribute to Unwin on Twitter.

My first tv week cover was with you. We had years of laughter, be it giggles on set trying to get through scenes as lovers or doubled over belly laughs at the pubs after work. I will be sad for now, but I promise to tell stories of great joy about our times together. You forever hold a special place in my heart. Love you Onion ❤️
