The body of a 20-year-old Sydney man has been recovered from heavy seas off the New South Wales central coast .. while police are coordinating a search for another man who was swimming with him.

Police say three men and a woman went for a late-night swim at Shelly Beach in Wyong .. about three o'clock (AEDT) this morning.

One man and the woman swam back to the beach shortly afterwards .. but called emergency services when the others didn't return.

The body of a 20-year-old man from Liverpool has been pulled from the surf .. and a search is underway for the other man.

It's believed the four swimmers were part of a group of people staying at a nearby caravan park.

Police say alcohol may have contributed to the incident.
