Kayaker missing

POLICE are appealing for public assistance to help locate missing kayaker Peter Cole.

The 63 year old Parkville man went missing overnight on Sunday, October 16 and the matter was reported to police about 8am the next day.

Police, including the Water Police, Air Wing and local police, along with the Coast Guard, State Emergency Service and Volunteer Marine Rescue personnel searched for Peter in Western Port Bay off Phillip Island for two days last week.

His kayak was located with no paddles at Red Rock Point, Cowes, about 9.45am Monday, October 17.

The paddle was later handed into police after it was located by a member of the public on October 17.

Police have released an image of Peter and are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen him before or while he was out kayaking.

Police are no longer searching for him but anyone who sights Peter is urged to call triple zero (000) and any other information can be reported to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
