Police divers will be called in today to help locate a man who went missing about 10km north of Minnie Waters on Wednesday (June 13).

Kenneth Parker, aged 72, was staying with a friend at a home on Jetty Road, Sandon Village.

He told his friend he was heading down to Sandon River to go fishing; however, his boat is still anchored at the jetty but his fishing rod is missing.

He was last seen about 1.30pm on Wednesday at Sandon Village.

Several days of searching by police and emergency services along the beach and National Park track and Westpac Rescue helicopter sweep of the Sandon Headland has failed to find Mr Parker.

The search has also involved SES, Surf Lifesaving NSW, Maritime Services as well as a Maritime drone.

Mr Parker is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 150cm tall, of a heavy build and balding white hair and blue eyes.

Anyone who sees him or has information about his whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
