A large-scale, three-day search failed to find the man, but on Saturday a body was found about 450 metres east of Bondi Beach.

Dental records were used to formally identify the body as 20-year-old American citizen Endicott Ackerman.

Mr Ackerman was a science student at the University of Sydney.

The 20-year-old went missing during wild weather which brought a huge swell last week.

Witnesses reported seeing a man jumping in or being swept into the water.
