Ian Gray: Missing fisherman identified as desperate Green Head search enters second day

The fisherman who was reported missing by concerned loved ones after he failed to return from a fishing trip off Green Head has been identified as 46-year-old Ian Gray.

Police were advised Mr Gray, who typically returns to shore after fishing about 4pm, was overdue at about 6.20pm on Sunday.

Mr Gray’s car and boat trailer remain at the boat ramp and family members have not heard from him overnight.

A search by several vessels and a helicopter did not locate the man on Sunday evening. The search resumed on Monday morning involving marine rescue and the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre jet.

State Emergency Services volunteers are also scouring the land along the shore.
