Cape Town - A man who went diving at Dyer Island, off the Overberg coast in the Western Cape, has yet to be found, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said on Tuesday.

The man, 31, from Gansbaai, had gone diving during the night and reportedly not surfaced from a dive around 02:00 on Monday, said NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon.
