Search Continues For Fourth Person After Boat Capsizes

Four people including an 11-year-old boy were thrown out of their boat when it capsized off Cape Hotham near Darwin this weekend.

Police boats and air assets are currently searching for a fourth person from a group who were reported missing after their boat capsized on Friday night.

Three people were initially reported missing including an 11-year-old boy but they washed ashore earlier on Sunday.

They were found by family members who had been assisting in the search operation.

Police say the fourth man was separated from the group while they were in the water.

He was last seen wearing a red life jacket around an hour after the vessel capsized.
