A Sydney man has been found dead near a Balinese beach over the weekend.
Christopher ‘Kibby’ Harris’ body was found near Batu Belig beach, 20 minutes north of Kuta 16 hours after checking out of his hotel on Friday night.
The cause of death of the British National who had been living in Sydney is still a mystery, according to Yahoo News.
Harris’ friend, Riess Willcocks posted on a Bali community Facebook group that his friends are searching for Harris’ passport and belongings, which they believe may have been left on the beach.
“Please, please any information at all can you please contact me,” Willcocks wrote.
Birmingham Live reported the British Foreign Office has confirmed they are offering advice and support to the family of a “British man following his death in Bali, and are in contact with the local authorities”.
Harris’ friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help bring his body home to the UK, which has raised almost $25,000.
“On 30th March 2019 at 11am, Christopher Kibby Harris passed away in Bali. It is not yet known how he passed and as soon as we know you will be informed,” the page reads.
“As you will understand Kibby’s parents Sandra and Peter are devastated by the news as we all are.
“We now need to work on bringing Kibby back to the UK and the cost of doing this is substantial, therefore we have created a GoFund me page in order to raise the funds needed so he can be brought back and given the send off he deserves.
“An investigation can then take place so closure can be sought for all that loves him.
“Kibby was a one of a kind human who had the power to light up the room with just a sentence, with his infectious smile and huge personality. We will keep you updated as and when we are. He will be missed desperately by us all. RIP Kibby you absolute legend.”
