Police are currently searching for a fisherman who failed to return home after a trip to Blairgowrie yesterday.
Investigators have been told the 78-year-old from Wantirna left to go fishing off rocks at the Blairgowrie back beach about 9am.
When he did not return home last night family members raised the alarm and police searched the area around 10pm last night.
The man’s car has been found in a car park on Number Sixteen Access Road but the man is yet to be located.
The search will continue at first light with assistance from other specialist police and the SES.
