Search fails to find man missing at Dunsky Beach near Albany as police plead for clues

Posted - ABC

The whereabouts of a 33-year-old man, whose disappearance triggered an extensive land sea and air search last week, is continuing to baffle police.

James William Norman was last seen entering the water near Dunsky Beach on the south coast, west of Albany, WA on Thursday afternoon.

It is understood he intended to swim to Shelley Beach.

Police, Albany Sea Rescue, the State Emergency Service and a light aircraft spent most of Friday searching for him.

The Albany volunteer sea rescue boat and three jet skis, supported by a spotter aircraft, continued the search into Saturday.

There have been some reports he may have been seen later near the Cosy Corner camp site but police at this stage have no further information.

Mr Norman is described as about 175cms tall, of slim build, with a fair complexion, short blond hair and hazel eyes.

Police urgently want anyone who knows of his whereabouts to let them know.

Police are no longer searching for a man who was reported missing after going for a swim off Dunsky Beach at Torbay, near Albany last week.

Police concluded the land, air and sea search for missing man James William Norman at Torbay off the state's south coast.

Mr Norman, 33, was reported missing on February 19 and it is believed he intended to swim to Shelley Beach.

Police divers and 25 SES volunteers supported by two Surf Life Saving jetskis searched the area on Friday morning without success.

That followed a week of searches including police, Albany Sea Rescue, the State Emergency Service and light aircraft.

Albany detectives said the extensive investigation did not identify any criminality associated with Norman's disappearance.

There were earlier reports Mr Norman may have been seen at the Cosy Corner campsite, but police said that had not been confirmed.

Mr Norman is described as about 175cm tall, of slim build, with a fair complexion, short blond hair and hazel eyes.

Police are still appealing for Mr Norman or anyone who may have seen him to let them know.
