There has been a double drowning with a second body pulled from the water today off the Central Coast, north of Sydney.

A woman in her 80s was found floating in waters off Moonee Beach yesterday afternoon.

A report is being prepared for the coroner into the woman's death.

A crime scene was set up and emergency crews began searching for a man believed to have been with the woman.

Police say the body of a man has now been found in waters off nearby Birdie Beach.

It is an unpatrolled beach popular with campers and hikers.

More to come.
