An SAP helicopter arrived in St Francis Bay this morning and spent several hours searching over the sea from the Kromme River mouth to Santareme for the body of Simon Moses, 25, who disappeared while swimming yesterday afternoon.

Simon went for a swim after having lunch with his niece, Nomvuyo Sisusa, who worked with him at the Department of Public Works. Both are from Sea Vista.

While swimming back to shore a big wave dunked him and he disappeared beneath the waves, Nomvuyo said. He never resurfaced.

It’s believed he has drowned and his body has washed along the St Francis coastline.
