Teenagers in a nearby dinghy raised the alarm of the attack which started an extensive search for the man.

The decision to call off the search was made at 4 pm on Sunday after the only item recovered was a pair of goggles which are now undergoing DNA analysis.


The wife of Mr. Millachip said her husband died doing what he loved, exercise, and thanked all of the people who were involved in the search for her husband.
