Unidentified man missing in surf at Three Anchor Bay

Authorities are searching for an unidentified man believed to be missing in the surf at Three Anchor Bay.

The NSRI’s Three Anchor Bay station commander, Robyn Silverstone, said an eye witness reported seeing a man disappearing under water on Friday, after appearing to be in difficulty in the surf.

‘’At 15h50, Friday, 7 October, NSRI Table Bay duty crew were activated following reports of a drowning in progress at Three Anchor Bay slipway… On arrival on the scene NSRI rescue swimmers entered the water to conduct free dive sweeping line search efforts, NSRI rescue craft and the EMS/AMS Skymed rescue helicopter conducted sea and air search efforts.’’


‘’Conditions were hampered by big sea swells during the Spring high tide. Shoreline search efforts were conducted. The Police Dive Unit was activated. Despite an extensive air, sea and shoreline search there remains no sign of the person,’’ she added.

Silverstone said that no one has come forward to report any person missing that may be related to this incident.

A Police Dive Unit will continue in an ongoing search and Police are investigating.
