KwaZulu-Natal - The search for the family of a man who was found floating in the Umzinyathi River near Nquthu continued, said KwaZulu-Natal police on Saturday.

The victim was estimated to be in his 50's.

Police were still investigating the circumstances behind his death, but it was suspected he may have been swept away as he attempted to make his way across the water. - Sapa
