Police have located the body of a man inside a truck which was reported missing late last week near the northern NSW town of Tamworth.

A 60-year-old man was carrying freight from Sydney to Tamworth and was expected to arrive at a Tamworth transport depot about 6.45am on July 29. He never arrived.

Police began an extensive search and found the truck under a bridge south of Wallabadah about 12:25pm on July 30.

Inquiries into the incident are continuing, with NSW Police saying it appears the truck ran off the road.

A report will be prepared for the coroner and any witnesses to the incident have been asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
