A passerby, noticed the boy dissapearing under the waves. The bystander entered the water to try to locate the boy, but was unsuccessful in his efforts.
IPSS Medical Rescue together with Kwadukuza Lifeguards and Police Search & Rescue launched 2 jet skis and a drone, in an effort to locate the missing boy.
The search continued for approximately 3 hours before being called off due to high winds and rough sea conditions.
The search will continue at first light tomorrow.
