Ian Gray: Police hold ‘grave concerns’ as search for missing hunter from Green Head called off until first light

The search for a lone fisherman who went missing off Green Head to first light was called off due to inappropriate weather, with police admitting they had “serious concerns” for the 46-year-old’s fisherman.

Ian Gray was reported missing around 6.20pm on Sunday after he failed to return home from his hunting trip at 4pm as expected.

Mr. Gray’s car and boat trailer remained at the slope of the boat and his family members did not hear from him.

A major land, air and sea rescue operation was launched in an attempt to find Mr. Gray, but had to be called off at 5 pm due to “bad weather”.

The search is set to begin in first light on Tuesday, with the participation of local volunteer marine rescue vessels, a Fisheries Department boat, an air wing and drones for Western Australian Police, a rescue helicopter and an Australian Maritime Safety Authority aircraft.
