Search after spearfishing gear found floating off NSW South Coast

There are fears a spearfisher may be missing at sea after a collection of fishing equipment was found floating in six-metre deep waters off a NSW South Coast beach.

PolAir are searching the land and sea around Narrawallee Beach Headland, north of Mollymook Beach, from the air this morning.

The equipment was pulled in by a fisherman from six-metre deep water approximately 100 metres off Narrawallee Beach Headland, just north of Mollymook Beach at around 3pm yesterday.

Among the items were a Green Typhoon rail gun and spear, a Go-Pro camera, an Ocean Hunter black fishing bag, black LED torch and red croc-style shoes.

Police have launched a public appeal for help to find the owner of the gear.

Images found on the camera's memory card suggest they may belong to a man of Asian appearance aged around 20 to 30 years old with a slim build.

The man is believed to be driving a Jeep-style vehicle.

No missing persons reports relating to a spearfisher in the area have been filed at this stage.
