·1-min read

A man's body has been discovered on rocks along the southwest Victorian coast two weeks after he and four friends were swept out to sea while diving.

Search and Rescue Squad divers found the body at Moonlight Beach, near Devil's Kitchen tourist area on Monday morning, before it was retrieved by a police air crew.

The body is yet to be formally identified, but police believe it is the fifth member of a group of friends swept out to sea while diving on April 30.

Three were rescued after becoming stranded on a cliff face later that day, while a 30-year-old Sunshine North man lost his life.

Police said the two-week search for the fifth man had been difficult due to poor weather conditions.
