Four children are alleged to be missing after they were spotted launching small grey rubber-duck at Gordons Bay on Wednesday.

According to the eye-witness they were not wearing life-jackets and had only oars but no motor and the eye-witness also reported seeing them go quite far out to sea, about 2 nautical miles, in a very short space of time, and there were concerns that they may be in trouble.

“At 17:45 an eye-witness reported seeing 4 children launching a small grey rubber-duck with red rope handles around the edges near Greenways, between Gordons Bay and Strand,” says NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon.

“The Vodacom Netcare 911 Surf Rescue helicopter, the SA Police Services and two rescue craft from NSRI Gordons Bay searched the area thoroughly but found no sign of the rubber-duck or the 4 children,” says Lambinon.

According to Lambinon no other reports relating to this incident were received and no reports of anyone missing or overdue have been lodged.

“The matter will continue to be monitored,” he added.
