Search For Fishermen Continues


Recommended Posts

A SEARCH for two fishermen who are missing after their boat capsized off the NSW mid-north coast has resumed this morning.

The two men were among four people on board a 16-foot boat near North West Solitary Island, near Woolgoolga when it capsized just before 9.30pm (AEST) yesterday.

A 33-year-old man wearing a lifejacket swam to shore and raised the alarm, with the subsequent search also locating a 23-year-old man. A 39-year-old man and a 43-year-old man and the boat are still missing despite the search effort continuing throughout the night.

The Westpac Lifesaver 4 Helicopter and POLAIR have resumed the search, with current sea conditions said to be favourable with only a one metre swell and light winds.


Let's all hope they are found safe and well.
