Police are asking the public for information about a man who was seen falling off rocks at Whiritoa Beach at about 5 pm yesterday.

A man wearing a white shirt was on the rocks at the south end of Whiritoa Beach for about an hour and a member of the public raised the alarm after seeing the man fall into the water and fail to resurface.

“Due to the witness needing to leave the beach to call for assistance, Police are unsure if the male that entered the water is still missing, a police spokesperson said.

“Police are appealing for members of the public with information about this incident to phone their local Police Station.

If anyone is aware of a male entering the water from the rocks at Whiritoa, who is now safely at home; or if anyone has information about a missing person in Whiritoa, please contact the Police.”
