Duty Inspector Vic Hussey told the ABC on Sunday that police were searching the water for others who were possibly missing.

“We are currently searching the water potentially for at least one person that may be missing from a vessel that was involved in a collision,” he said.

“Regrettably there is one person that is deceased as a result of this collision.

“We are aware of the fact that potentially the boat has hit a navigation marker or something similar.”
