Cape Town – An unknown man, who reportedly went missing at Three Anchor Bay in Cape Town on Friday, has still not been found despite an ongoing search.
The man reportedly disappeared under water after he allegedly had some difficulties in the surf, reported the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI).
According to NSRI’s station commander, Robyn Silverstone, NSRI was called to the scene on Friday afternoon.
“An eyewitness reported seeing a man disappearing under water after appearing to be in difficulty in the surf. Later, additional eye-witnesses came forward with the same,” said Silverstone.

He said the NSRI rescue swimmers, the police, and several emergency services responded and were assisted by the EMS/AMS Skymed rescue helicopter.
However, their efforts were hampered by big sea swells and eventually halted by the darkness.
On Saturday morning the search teams continued their efforts to recover the body, the report said.
“No one has come forward to report any person missing that may be related to this incident,” says Silverstone.
A Police Dive Unit is continuing with the search.
