"Anomaly" detected on seabed off Wynyard as search continues

Missing boat Wynyard

Police divers will be used today to more closely inspect a part of the seabed off Wynyard in the hope that missing Ulverstone man Thomas Courto and the boat he disappeared with 10 days ago will be found.

Analysis of a two-day sonar survey conducted earlier this week has identified an area of anomaly on the seabed, with divers to search the area near the coastline.

Mr Courto hasn't been seen since last Monday when he left Wynyard to go boating with friends Bree-Anna Thomas and Isiah Dixon, whose bodies were found last week.

Police have again reminded members of the public not to enter the water in the search area.
