A man has been charged with murder by Australian police investigating the disappearance of a Sydney teenager this week.

The family of Nona Belomesoff, 18, said she had left home on Wednesday to meet two men she had contact with on online social network Facebook.

Police arrested a 20-year-old man on Friday evening. Shortly after officers found what they believe is the teenager's body in bushland. The body is yet to be formally identified.

Police say they will allege at the court appearance of the 20-year-old that the second man Ms Belomesoff believed she was meeting did not exist.
