Police update: Search, Currumbin

Police have located a woman safe and well, following comprehensive search and rescue efforts in relation to an unconfirmed report of a missing woman at Currumbin Beach on Tuesday night.

Police were initially called to an area off Currumbin Beach, near Elephant Rock, just before 9:30pm (March 21), after a man told people nearby that he had seen a woman being swept off rocks into the water.

Those people contacted police; however the man was not present when officers arrived, and no information was provided as to the woman’s identity.

A large-scale land, air and sea search ensued over the next few days involving Water Police, shore line searches, divers, jetskis and PolAir. Surf Life Saving Queensland also assisted in the search.

Investigations to locate the man and subsequent public appeals resulted in the woman being identified safe and well around 11am this morning (Friday March 24).

Investigations continue to locate the man.
