Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie crew searching for missing boat south of Swansea Heads

A volunteer crew on board Marine Rescue NSW vessel Lake Macquarie 30 was tasked by Marine Area Command this morning to search for a reported missing boat with two people on board.

Marine Rescue NSW Inspector Courtney Greenslade said Lake Macquarie 30 began the search at 7:50am.

“Two people went fishing on a small vessel late last night and reportedly failed to return after launching from Blacksmiths boat ramp.

“Marine Rescue NSW volunteers are searching from Swansea Heads south to Norah Head.

“Offshore conditions are currently somewhat favourable,” Inspector Greenslade said.

Marine Rescue NSW is a volunteer based not-for-profit professional organisation dedicated to keeping boaters safe on the water and supporting local communities.
