Police have called off a search for a man who was believed to have gone missing off Yamba’s Main Beach on Sunday.
An air and sea search was underway yesterday after the man was reported missing late Sunday afternoon when his towel and hat had remained unattended on the beach since midday.
Police issued a description of the man, on Monday, as being in his 60s and walking with a limp.
At that stage, witnesses told police they had seen him enter the water around midday but not return.
ABC radio reported today that new witnesses have come forward to say they believe they saw a man answering the same description leaving the beach in a car.
No one has been reported missing over the incident.
