Search suspended for missing SA man

A two-day search of waters off Hall Bay, on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula, has failed to find a missing 57-year-old man.

The alarm was raised just before 7.30pm on Friday after a small aluminium boat with two men and two boys on board overturned in an area between Coffin Bay and Elliston.

One of the men and the two boys managed to swim to shore.

A search was launched involving police, State Emergency Service volunteers, police and local fishermen but has so far failed to find the missing man.

Police divers also joined the search on Sunday and recovered a small outboard motor but it is yet to be confirmed as coming from the disabled boat.

The search was suspended late on Sunday but will resume on Monday.
