According to the statement of Duty Inspector Vic Hussey told ABC, search operations are still going for the people missing.

“We are currently searching the water potentially for at least one person that may be missing from a vessel that was involved in a collision,” he said.

“Regrettably, one person is deceased as a result of this collision.

“We are aware of the fact that potentially the boat has hit a navigation marker or something similar.”

Superintendent Peter Morrissey believed that it was least expected that Mrs Bazzo was still alive due to the size and scale of the search.

“We’ve done land-based searches and water-based searches and at this stage, we’re probably in a space where we’re looking to recover the body,” he said.
