THE Sunshine Coast rugby community has paid tribute to "a fine young gentleman" as it  mourns the loss of 19-year-old Dylan Daure.

Dylan's body was found behind a Buderim shopping complex yesterday, after he went missing in the early hours of Saturday morning. The cause of his death is not known.

Dylan's career as a rugby player included playing Queensland Country U17s, Sunshine Coast Open Schoolboys, Premier colts and Junior Stingrays and two years in the Sunshine Coast Grammar School 1st XV.

Sunshine Coast Rugby Union president Glenn Ferguson said he first met Dylan and his family when Dylan first played rugby as a young student at Sunshine Coast Grammar School.

"Whilst Dylan was an outstanding rugby player and sportsman, he will be remembered first and foremost as a wonderful young man who was popular, respected and loved by all who were fortunate enough to know him," Mr Ferguson said.

Stingray Rugby High Performance Unit director Ian Brown said the entire rugby community was thinking of Dylan's family.

"Our thoughts are with his family who have lost a loving son, grandson and brother, his mates who have lost a valued friend and to the rugby community who have lost a wonderful young man," Mr Brown said.

"Dylan will be fondly remembered for his modesty, humility and gentle nature. At his young age, he was already known as a fine young gentleman.

"The thoughts and prayers of the whole rugby community on the Sunshine Coast are with Dylan's family at this very difficult time."
