Fire/rescue crews spent another day searching for a 56-year-old fisherman last seen about 9 p.m. Friday (June 6) before falling into the ocean near MacKenzie State Park.

Sources say the man either fell or was swept into the water by a wave fronting the Malama Flats area.

Sunday crews used a helicopter, rescue boat with divers and ground crews to search up to 1/2 mile offshore and from Pohoiki to Kaimu Beach for the missing fisherman.

The search was suspended due to darkness and will resume at daybreak Monday (June 9).
