Missing fisherman identified



THE fisherman missing off rocks at the popular Old Man's Bluff fishing spot near Angourie since last Thursday has been identified as Alan Bradbeer from Yamba.

The 70-year-old, who is thought to have resided at the Yamba Waters Caravan Park, disappeared after setting out for a fishing trip in the Yuraygir National Park around 7.30am.

Police called off the search for Mr Bradbeer on Friday afternoon after an intensive man hunt failed to locate him.

The disappearance of Mr Bradbeer prompted the Royal Life Saving Society of Australia to issue a release to anglers urging them to take extra care when fishing.

"It can take only one wave to be washed, so it is vital you stay alert," the release said.
