"A dive search co-ordinated by police divers including fire and rescue and the Western Cape emergency management services divers is ongoing this morning," spokesperson Craig Lambinon said.

The 50-year-old Cape Town man went missing on Saturday while on a 34 metre recreational dive with friends. He was suspected to have remained at the Rock Eater wreck after being separated from the other divers he was with.

The search began after his friends reported him missing at around noon on Saturday.
