Police have now concluded this afternoon’s search for the two men missing after their boat got into trouble near Smoothwater Bay on Thursday night.

The helicopter and ground teams have been searching since around 1pm today but unfortunately have not located the men.

The attached photos taken by staff today demonstrate the rugged coastline they have been searching.

Police plan to resume the search tomorrow morning but this will be weather dependent.

An update regarding plans will be provided when it is available.
