The post-mortem examination of the man found floating under the Wynyard Wharf yesterday morning was completed at about 3pm today and Police have been advised there are no injuries on him. He was alive when he went into the water.

Officer in charge of the investigation into the man's death, Detective Senior Sergeant Mark McHattie, says Police believe they know the man's identity but are yet to locate and inform Next of Kin.

Inquiries to date show the deceased's money card was used on August 12, August 15 and August 16 in Auckland - the last time being at an ATM machine on Newton Rd at 11.13am on Saturday.

"We're hoping to get CCTV footage of the card being used at that location so we can prove who was in possession of it at the time," Mr McHattie said.

"At this point there's nothing to suggest the person who used the card was anyone other than the deceased as there was money and the card in his wallet which was in his pocket when he was recovered from the water in the Viaduct."

Police Divers have spent the day searching the seabed around Wynyard Wharf and beyond but have not retrieved anything of significance to the investigation.
