SURF Lifesaving Illawarra duty officer and Bulli SLSC callout teams were on Bulli beach at first light this morning providing surveillance patrols after a search swung into action yesterday evening.
The search got underway after reports of a possible person in the surf off Bulli Beach, near ‘The Pines’, east of Ocean Park soccer fields. It was called-off when darkness fell.
Surf Lifesaving Illawarra was notified of reports of a person was about 120 metres off shore late yesterday afternoon.
Multiple emergency services responded including NSW Police, NSW Ambulance, Toll Rescue Helicopter 208, Surf Lifesaving Illawarra Duty Officers, and Bulli Surf Club emergency team.
A search was conducted with the IRB conducting line searches offshore with two lifesaving rescue swimmers searching in the water and rock platforms.
After a extensive search along the beach, water and air, the search was called off due to darkness.
A spokesperson for Surf Lifesaving Illawarra said currently no one is reported missing, and no personal belongings have been found on the beach.
