Detectives are appealing for witnesses following the death of a man in what appears to have been a hit and run crash north of Brisbane.

Emergency crews were alerted to the discovery of a body near the intersection of Porter and Beerburrum roads at Caboolture around 7am on Saturday.

Police say initial investigations indicate the man had been walking near the intersection when he was struck by a vehicle.

They believe the vehicle involved was not at the scene when the man was located.

The 45-year-old, from Caboolture, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Forensic Crash Unit and Morayfield CIB are investigating.

Beerburrum Road between Porter Road and Tuckeroo Drive was closed for four hours as officers carried out preliminary investigations.

Police say it's possible the driver is unaware their vehicle was involved.

As a result, investigators are appealing for the person behind the wheel or anyone who may have witnessed the incident to make contact.

Anyone with dash cam vision from the area is also urged to come forward.
