7:31 pm on 21 March 2012

The funeral of the four men confirmed dead from the sinking of a fishing boat in Foveaux Strait last week will be held at Rugby Park in Invercargill Thursday morning.

Four people who were on the boat are still missing and the unofficial search for them continued Wednesday.

No decision has been made on whether to continue the search on Thursday.

Meanwhile a fund has been set up to allow the unofficial air and sea search to continue, and donations to it can be made at any branch of Westpac bank.
